Asturias and the Beaches of Northern Spain: 6/28/12 - 7/1/12

Two weekends ago, Luke and I rented a cute little Ford Fiesta,

grabbed the largest to-go coffee we could find,

and headed to Asturias, which is a community in the North of Spain about 5 hours from Madrid.

We took pictures of old, rustic doors,

 and had a couple of close encounters with cows,


and sheep.

I got my feet wet in the Atlantic,

and Luke did some novice rock climbing in flip flops

while I warned from above to, "Be Careful!"

We posed with more cute, old doors on the misty walk to dinner, 

but nearly cancelled our dinner plans when we picked up our own escargot along the way. 

We sampled fine Spanish wine, 

 and enjoyed a beer or two alongside gorgeous ocean views. 

We saw gorgeous, untouched beaches,

witnessed where the river literally meets the sea,

and discovered remarkable, yet fleeting, inland beaches that only exist when the tide is just right. 

We were on top of the world.

After our time in Asturias, we headed east along the coastline to San Sebastian. Recap to follow soon!
