Grado to Salas
15.30: Terry has walked to Salas today. There were two diversions round roadworks and he arrived in the rain. He has had his full wet weather gear on as there was a thunderstorm. Effective, he was dry underneath it.
There would have been nowhere to dry anything in the albergue so he has gone up the road to the hotel, cost 15 euros. He thought it was worth the extra 10 euros to get things dry. He has hung his poncho and over-trousers up in the en-suite bathroom and put his boots on the window sill. He wiped some reproofer over them in Oviedo so his feet are nice and dry too.
Away from the coast it is much cheaper for overnight stops, and hopefully also for meals. He had found both accomodation (even albergues) and food quite expensive up to now.
When he can find an internet café there will be some more photos. He tried to send some photos in Oviedo, but without success, so will try again when possible.
