We had another quiet evening in the aire at Llanes. The day gets started with a FaceTime call from Indiana telling us all about Fiji and her trip on the plane.
We have a coffee and some fruit before getting the scooter ready. Our daughter Alix has recommended Playa St Martin, west of Llanes. It’s an isolated beach some 2 kms west of Llanes, our guide book states its a 15 minute walk from the car-park but the scooter reduces that to a 100m.

Returning the aire at Llanes we re-load the scooter and service the Hymer before continuing west on the A8. The mist closes in again and the sun disappears. The mountains of the Picos flank the road to the south. Whilst I’m no Spanish weather expert but it seems the Picos create a weather phenomenon along the Asturias coast.
Thirty minutes later we turn and drive in Llastres. The lower car-park is full but we can tell it’s our sort of place.

After spending 5 minutes cooling down we pack up the Hymer and continue west…
