Ribadesella - Summer on an Asturian beach

As mentioned at my previous post our journey through Asturias wasn’t particular sunny … Here in my country people think of Spain as a warm and always sunny holiday destination.
The picture is taken in July in Ribadesella at the Sea of Cantabria. The temperature was certainly good but most days were gloomy and dark. Just the kind of weather that people in Belgium wish to escape for a while :)

Ribadesella lies at the mouth of the River Sella in the Sea of Cantabria.
On the picture you can see the last part of the meandering river before it flows into the open sea (the sea is on the right, not on the picture).

Ribadesella is known for the yearly International Descent of the Sella River, a boat race that takes place on the first weekend of August .
