LAGOS DE COVADONGA 02/12/2018
South winds have been pushing up temperatures so it is time to pay a visit to Picos de Europa. What best than the Lagos de Covadonga lakes.
In recent years it has become more and more difficult to get there. Government officials have decided to control the access to the place establishing a regulated public transport system on weekends and bank holidays. Originally, it worked only during the Summer months and on long weekends but the restrictions have been extended to the point in which almost all weekends are now banned.
For those of us living here and working all week, this is very disappointing and one can't help but see the dark side of it. The private company that runs the buses is increasing its profits and the environment protection excuses don't convince anyone.
This particular day we could see the new system of barriers and video cameras they have instaled. Really bad news.
Nos salimos en Villaviciosa para una estupenda merienda y un agradable paseo antes de volver a casa. Una ruta estupenda sin duda.
With all that in mind, we tried to savour it as if it was the last time.
We pulled out at Villaviciosa for a nice tea and a pleasant stroll before coming back home. A nice ride out indeed.
