Today we hadn't set an alarm and after closing the outside roller door it completely blacks out the room, so we got up around 930. Had breakfast and watched the All blacks pumas match, some in french.

We drove west for a couple of hours but were disappointed in some of the places we looked at. Places like Gijon and Aviles were fairly industrial so we headed back east along the coast and settled for a beach/riverside town called Ribadesella. We really enjoyed it there. There are good walks ...
