Colombres to Llanes

Distance today 22.6km :
15.35: Terry has arrived in Llanes where he is staying in the Gran Hotel Paraiso for two nights. He got the last bed!! and I am not sure if he meant in the hotel or in Llanes. (He says it was what is called 'a camino experience' - a real sense of God's presence with him) The whole place is full for the Bank Holiday.
An easier walk today with very good weather. The Picos de Europa are covered in snow with the snow-line very low.
A rest day tomorrow before continuing towards Oviedo on Monday. He hopes to reach Oviedo for next weekend and, depending on the weather forecast, will turn south towards Lugo rather than going along the coast where there are long distances between hostels.
Total of 211km walked (from Exeter to Llanes); aprox 250km to go to Santiago de Compostela; and currently halfway between Santander and Oviedo.
