Crean's and the Guys' adventure travel blog

Parking hasnt been a problem yet- last night we parked straight in front of the pension. The car is very easy on diesel and manages 4 adults and luggage easily. Took the fast route today to get further weat and arrived at Luarca around 1pm. With a population of around 6k it is indicative of the villages from here to the most western point. A small enclosed harbour with restaurants along the waterfront. Our hotel is on the waterfront (E55) and with what looks like a good seafood restaurant underneath.- we managed to get the back rooms so should have a quiet night. This town has a wellknown marine musuem, specialising in deep sea fish life, and it has some very large giant squid, with mention of the giant squid found on the Kaikora coast of NZ. In the village near the cemetery is a wall lined with painted tiles depicting the various wars and disasters that have befallen Luarca since the 16th century- very interesting. We love people watching- in the cool of the evening all the locals promenade along the waterfront- old men and women, young families with babies in beautiful old styled prams. Its the best time of the day as the evenings are very mild until late.

Seafood dinner: baby octopus galician style, battered baby squid (delicious- must stop using them for bait at home!), and a bowl each of seafood soup. :) :)
