Back from our walk along the beach at Playa Salinas, we roll the Hymer out and drive back into Aviles. It’s only a few minutes or a few kms. We stop around the corner from the dedicated parking place and park in the far corner of the Lidl in a shady spot.
After yesterday’s non-achievements we can make amends by exploring Aviles.
After a quick shop in the Lidl we set off for the Old Town.
We found the old centro of Aviles an interesting walk, but time is getting on as we walk back to the Hymer. We drive around to the service point, both have long showers whilst the hose fills our water tank. Job done we fill with LPG at the Repsol next door and continue west along the A8.
Our guide books recommend visiting Cudillero a port village a few kms off the A8 so we turn to have a look.

We decide Cudillero will do nicely for the night. We walk into town check the tapas menu in the Tavernas and have a general explore of its two narrow streets. In the early evening we return for the sardines and squid 🦑. It rains quite heavily for an hour but eases for a dry walk back to the Hymer.
