From The Drivers perspective …

We woke up this morning and checked the weather forecast and it confirmed 3 days of rain and no sun . We had breakfast of croissants watching the surfers in Playa de Doninos ..after the second hail storm we decided to head east hoping to find less days of rain.

On the journey we decided to take the fast route seeing lots of very wet Camino de Santiago walkers on the back roads

Camino routes .. our walkers were on the north coast road

We took the main road and Motorway(non toll) to Tapia de Casareigo

What the town looks like in the sunshine

which was a pay for aire €4 including waste dump and water(it was that time again!). We set up with a view to the sea and head to a strong wind (happy bunnies).We didn’t go out ..

Hetty’s view

With a lasagna for the oven and bread for baking with garlic and butter. Everything sorted warm and full.

THEN it started lightening out at sea about 20 seconds to the bang no problem it’s miles away. But it came closer and closer and as the Cook doesn’t like this type of weather and no staircase to hide under she was like a rabbit in the headlights.

The storm passed us ..all ok now to bed all snug and warm from the food some wine and left over heat from the oven.

It started hailing so hard we had to put pillows over our heads to prevent being deafened ,The wind picked up and shifted so Hetty was a bit sideways and back came the thunder and lightning which circled us for hours.

Now normally we don’t mind a bit of rain on the roof it’s therapeutic and relaxing not last night which was full on It was a slightly disturbed night plus the clocks changed so in theory an hour less kip but bugger that we slept till late… very late

What to do next ? Head for the sun ..There isn’t any ! All we can do is drive east nearer the ferry and hope for a change in weather ..
