All morning long the winds howled and the rain pounded on the windows beckoning us to sleep in, we finally get ourselves motivated and moving after having lunch with Gustavo and a few of his flatmates. First stop grocery store. To our amazement a question we came up with in Madrid is answered: we seen an ad on a bus go by one day that had these colored rolls in a beautiful pattern with the brand Renova above it, I assumed it was a paint company Kevin guessed grip tape, both way off. Colored toilet paper, never would have guessed that one.
The first street corner paid restroom we have seen, only .20 euros.
Finally heading to the beach, windy stormy rainy day no problem, Gore Tex!
Here is Kevin making up our salami and cheese sandwiches with our 1 euro 1 liter box of wine.
Seafront castle residence
It has been so long since I have seen waves his big, the Atlantic has been so violent this last week
As the daylight was finally fading we go to the far end of the beach and the lighthouse!
The whole day the weather has held out, grey and daunting but dry. Suddenly it starts to sprinkle, then rain, suddenly we are caught in a downpour, we head for cover and find a gazebo to hide out under, a mere 5 minutes later and it has stopped as if it never even happened, except now we are soaked. Twice more during the walk home this happened, but we were smart enough to see the pattern coming on and head for cover. So we walked to the beach, along the boardwalk and back home for a grand total of 8.6 miles
We saw lots of historical and functioning fishing boats and a beautiful display of traps down by the docks.
