We stopped for pastry and cafe and left town around 8:30am. Today should be around 20km (turned out to be 23.8km - nearly 15 miles). The camino has apparently been re-routed a bit so the expected stop at a bar for "second breakfast" did not appear so we walked onwards. Most of the day was on one lane roads or farm tracks with a bit of somewhat muddy trails and only a little bit on highway. We enjoyed the views of farms, fields and glimpses of the ocean on the horizon as we also passed through many small villages. As we neared our destination of Navia, a strong shower blew over and we were glad that it ended after 15 minutes or so. We stopped for a late lunch at a Sidreria in Navia. Fried squid, brochettes of squid, shrimp and octopus. The latter was quite interesting and delicious. Of course, we had to have a bottle of sidra! We found a room nearby at Pension Cantabrico and relaxed a bit after our showers. Now we are (of course!) enjoying a glass of wine as we work on our journals.
Dinner was at Sidreria Antonin and quite nice. A warm salad, plate of Chipirones Fritos and two bottles of Sidra.

We love the colors of the ocean - blue in contrast to the lush green of the fields and forest
We walked some today with a nice young woman from Slovakia

We do love our Chipirones - asked for aoli to accompany these - and had two bottles of Sidra!
