Playa de Vega, Ribadesella, Asturias

Sunset at Playa de Vega, Ribadesella

As the crow flies, La Playa de Vega is one of the closest beaches to where we live.  It’s situated east of Ribadesella, often windy and the sea has a strong current.

A short river, ‘Río Acebo’ enters the sea here, dissecting part of the beach, a little too strong to cross without getting wet feet, especially holding a camera and dragging along a tripod.

There’s also a small sand dune area as well as the Camino de Santiago running close by.

But it was the rock formations and evening light that took our fancy this week.  We made 3 visits and recorded this moments.
