It was a bliss of bends as we headed west along the north coast, passing Bilbao and Santander on the way while sticking to the back roads as much as possible. The destination for today was Comillas, a unique spot as it is one of the very few outside Barcelona where Gaudi has designed some architecture. The sunflower palace (my name for it, not Gaudi's) was impressive! I would like to live in a house like that: grand, artistic, and a little pretentious, it ...

We left San Vicente and followed the wonderful NW Spanish coast (when you can see it) and went to Ribadesella. Originally we were thinking of anchoring but then decided to moor along the pontoon in the marina. We weren't going to stay long, just overnight.
In the evening there was a performance in the towns square. We didn't attend but listened to the seagulls, surprisingly in tune, joining along.
