Thee is a lovely park in Avilés, called Ferrera Park. It was well used by people strolling or jogging and had that essential for a park – water; in this case a pond by which there were not only geese but a black swan.
Off to the side was a nice parterre garden:-
Complete with fountain:-
You know you’re not in Fife anymore when you see a tree like this:-
Just behind the parterre garden was this painted building:-
The sculpture is called Avilés and seems to be by an artist called Benjamín Menéndez:-
As the SS Black Watch left we passed this striking sculpture. It’s by Benjamín Menéndez and is called “Avilés”:-
This interesting rock formation stick sout into the Ría Avilés estuary:-
Further out where the estuary meets the Atlantic we could see loads of surfers riding the waves into Playa San Juan de Nieva but they were a bit too far off to photograph.
