France & Spain Cruise: The Photo Album Day 4: Gijon, Spain

Aloha Bombshells,

The last post and port of call in this mini cruise series is Gijon, Asturias, Spain, the second most beautiful port on this trip. A place where the water is as blue as a crystal and the sandy San Lorenzo beach stretches for miles.

We jumped on the shuttle bus into town which took around 15- 20 minutes, it was a lovely ride in, the actual dock itself wasn't that pretty to look at it was like a container port, so I wasn't sure what to expect, but once we pulled up into the main part of town, wow it was entirely different, I love the architecture in Spain, it's similar in ways to the British buildings but has a character all of its own. It's certainly a place we both wouldn't mind going back to for a few days, as when you are on a cruise you only get a few hours to explore which isn't long enough and with him having to back onboard for his evenings work, it did make our schedule run even tighter but from what we saw it was a lovely place to be and we both enjoyed it.

This was the port that we actually had to re-dock at as there was a medical emergency at the last minute, so five minutes after pulling out, the captain comes over the tannoy and tells us to re-dock, which I though great it might affect our arrival into Southampton and we would get more time to spend together on the ship but alas that didn't happen, I just can't get over how those six days went by so fast, it was a truly remarkable and memorable trip for us and the first of many cruises together I hope.
