    Gijon to Pola de Somiedo

    Last night saw a late night cabin picnic; Cheeses, hams, bread, crackers, nuts, Pelforth and various wines of France whilst being moderately bobbed around by the sea, all adding to the general enjoyment of things, topped off with a grand sleep and with a midday arrival so no need to get up with the larks.

    Early in the morning I am reminded of another Female quality that has long been absent from my mind: They rabbit on. I become aware of this when I'm walking around on deck the following morning and a lady from Northern Ireland approaches and says 'I'm sorry to hear about your trousers'

    So we dock on schedule and we're on the road about 45 minutes after. Finally I get to motor in Spain (well a couple of hours crossing from the Algarve in a Ford Focus on a boozed up golf trip doesn't really count). Spain's entry checks consist of a statue like sunglass sporting uniformed bloke with a huge mostache and folded arms. We drift past unnoticed. The thinking is to get away from the port and stop for a moment by the coast to finish last night's picnic. Gijon is easily navigated, that's a relief. Sometimes I'm a tad apprehensive at new countries on the bike. There is a light rain now, but there are still people on the beach and in the sea.

    Parked up by the beach. Less is sometimes more. I'm particularly liking the suspension and exhaust arrangements..



    We set off for the Somiedo National Park, which is not a long run from Gijon, and we'll see how we get on. I figure the Picos can come later; every other bike on the ferry seemed headed there, so why not be a tiny bit different for now anyways. The rain clears away and we're cheered with some good sunshine and empty roads, bar from some looney in a Suzuki Vitara who almost got us. The going is fairly brisk and slows as the roads narrow and become more scenic as we delve further into the park.



    Signs you seldom see on the North Circular. It certainly got my atencion..



    Lovely..



    We reach Pola de Somiedo and stop for a coffee. It's a great little place in the valley, picturesque with some good looking bars and restuarants. We note the place we stop at for a coffee has a camp site 50m up the hill, so I look it over and that's it settled.

    Parked up, tent up. Learning to play the mattress..



    'I hear these new fangled ones are going to be water cooled. Whatever next..' said the cat.



    Cracking little place, this..



    Let's have a quick ramble to the supermarket then..



    Aha.. Tetra-Pak wine available for 65p. Now that'll be getting spangled on the cheap..



    Overseas supermarkets and products are a never ending source of fun for me. Tiny things and all that I s'pose..



    Locals out for a walk with the kids..



    Somiedo Bears. Can't help but notice the campsite has a lot of fencing.



    Cider, once again, is the tipple around these parts. It's poured from a height in shot sizes and then chugged.. It works, though..



    And a fine evening meal with the finest of Asturias fayre..



    .. And so to bed.
