    Ribadesella and then Gijon

    August 26, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    From St Vincent we kept moving west, we passed Llanes with its painted blocks on the breakwater and headed to what was a very pretty village in Rio Sella estuary, not a lot of history but nice. Saw our first elevated wooden house 'Horreo' and tried to see the Tito Bustillo Caves and pain things. Hadn't realised they had Unesco status and that you had to book at least a month on advance, we visited the museum instead which was surprisingly good and probably more informative than just looking at marks on walls. On Thursday we spent 3hours kayaking back along coast to visit natural caves for edge by the sea they were stunning but experience wasn't as good as could have been as was raining all day. John took photos on waterproof camera and I will try to put some on blog soon. Then on to Gijon a big industrial Port on west of the estuary but touristy on east passed a small Port call Tazones on the way very picturesque . Last 2photos are in Gijon.Read more
