After my rough night, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to walk today. We slept in a while and went to a café to think about our options. I decided to try to walk and explore some of the closer accommodations options. Leaving Colombres we had to walk along a highway with truck after truck speeding by us. Finally in Buelnes we were able to get off the highway and onto the scenic GR E-9 path out on the cliffs above the ocean. This was one of the most scenic paths yet and we had amazing sunny weather.
I was still feeling weak and nauseous, so was happy to see a sign advertising rooms in a local café for €25. I figured a cheap room above a café might be pretty crappy, but would at least give me a place to lie down and recuperate. So I was very pleasantly surprised when we arrived to the room and it was a beautiful spotless room with a large luxurious private bathroom.
Dave dropped his pack and went back onto the trail to continue walking to Llanes in order to get the GPS data, while I took a hot shower and collapsed into bed. I was feeling so much better that I even ordered a dinner in the café below (they offer a delicious two-course meal with dessert for €7). The dinner was so tasty and I was so hungry from my two days of not really eating that I started off with too much too fast. Shorly after, my food made a reappearance. L Clearly my illness is not over yet!
