Cóbreces to San Vicente de la Barquera
15.40: Terry has arrived in San Vicente de la Barquera, 24km from Cóbreces. There was a diversion round roadworks on this stretch too,which added extra kms. He is staying in the albergue in San Vicente and found an internet café, so I can add pictures to the recent posts. The sun is shining after a damp morning, and all is well.
17.30: He has washed, and dried, all his clothes and powdered his boots ready for tomorrow.
Terry says he is halfway (in kms walked) from Exeter to Oviedo. He hopes to make Oviedo for next weekend and will then decide which route to take. At present the snowline is down at 900mts and the path goes up over 1000mts, so he may re-trace his route , by rail, and walk along the coast.
The view is across the harbour to San Vicente, which is entered over the bridge. The great 13th century church of Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles is on the far right above the town and the Picos de Europa are in the background.
The rainbow is on the road near to Cóbreces; a reminder of God's promise that it will not rain for ever (!)
