    Good day sunshine

    June 5 in Spain

    Being woke up in the night by rain didn't bode well. Foreboding clouds at breakfast equally so. Lots of fruit for breakie & a mildly optimistic weather forecast helped the mood. Decided to head to San Vincente de la Barqeura - a pretty port town with some great beaches, apparently. On the way patches of blue came & went, lasting only fleetingly. Located free car parking & headed for the visitor centre at the lighthouse - closed. Detour down to the harbour & took in the hotel quarter - no-one about, though the way the weather has been, no great surprise. Back to town & toilet quest (bus depot) By now the sun was doing it's best so the beach was calling along with food. A pleasant picnic, a safe distance away from the massive school party & ample sunshine (as it transpires too much for a certain person) Took a walk along the massive beach & managed a first swim of the year - bracing. The theory was that the coast was clear & once we went back up into the hills it would cloud over. Thus we prevaricated by way of an ice cream. Pleasingly on our return the deck chairs were of use - make the best of the sun - might not come back...Read more

    The joy of a real towel...

    The view of a real towel can really make my day now and I think I dream about large piles of multicoloured, fluffy towels every night. I recommend hostels to other pilgrims when they have towels and I nearly jumped for joy when the hotel I'm staying in tonight had four towels all for me!!!
    It's amazing how perspective changes when one is on a journey so long. The kilometers don't count as much anymore, my feet and body have grown strong. But the longing for basic comforts has increased significantly and it makes me realise what an amazingly easy and comfortable life we lead.
    Someone said that the difference between a pilgrim and a tourist is that a pilgrim thanks you. Pilgrims are genuinely grateful, because they realise the pleasure of simple things and gestures again.
    So my friends, look around and appreciate and be grateful for what you have. We lead a life of luxury and we keep forgetting about this.

  • Day123

    San Vicente de la Barquera

    September 24 in Spain

    Travelled along the coast through magnificent countryside - Switzerland by the sea.
    The coast road is a good one and we made great time so got there early afternoon.
    We walked to Comillas town through the nature reserve for a mooch.Big fish feeding on fly in the river mouth as we walked along.
    There is a great early Gaudi house (El Caprichio) there which we cycled back to the following day so we could catch english speaking tour. Well worth the effort. we then cycled the coast road to San Vicente which was very hilly and enjoyed a look round the town which is on a beautuful river mouth. Fortified ourselves with a lunch to face the hilly ride back.
    Wednesday was a beach day on a very underpopulated beach with very soft sand a short walk from our site.
