Beautiful landscapes and spending the night at the hut

I love Cedeira!!

I woke up at ridiculous o'clock as Alex had left his phone in the room and the alarm went off at 7am!! Grr!! The boys came back from the hut around 11:30 after a pretty cold night we heard. Lucia made us a huge breakfast which was so delicious. After we got all showered Pablo and his dad took us all on a drive around the area. Cedeira is just so beautiful, the scenery is amazing! I have never seen such beautiful landscape!

First we drove up some massive hill along the coast. We came up to all these hills that just dropped off. It was soo windy as well we were getting blown all over the place. After that we drove down this really windy road that was right on the side of the cliff which was really freaky but we drove down to this nice lighthouse and got some good pictures there.

Then we went up to someplace that I think is like a national park...there were picnic tables and what not set up and it had a big cement wall that you could sit on which was nice. Also very very windy here. There were tons of wild horses as well just walking around and one was very very pregnant.

The last place we went was up to the windmills which generate power and it was high up on a mountain that just dropped down to the ocean. We were sitting on the wall basically just haning over the cliff and looking out to the sea. It was so gorgeous and peaceful. While looking out to the water we could see this black rain cloud over the water and noticed that it was coming closer and closer to us. It was so crazy, like a grey/black mist coming towards us.

It got closer and closer and finally we could feel the rain. It was one of the weirdest yet coolest things I have ever seen before. I have never been hit horizontally by rain and when we turned around we could no longer feel the rain on our faces but on our backs. Talk about weird! We didn't even mind that we were getting wet by the rain because it was such a cool experience.

Once we were down site seeing and pretty wet and windswept we drove back into the town and Pablo took us up to the hut. His mom was already there and she was making a barbeque. It was one of the best meals I have ever had! We had bbq ribs, sausages, potatoes, salad, and then Lucia went to the house and made a potato omlet as well for Hannah because she is a vegetarian.

We also had wine and some home made liquer and then after we were done eating we got biscuits and coffee. We hung out at the hut for a while and then went down to the house to get changed and went to the store to get some booze.

For the rest of the night we stayed up at the hut just chatting and having a good time with a couple drinks here and there. I used Alex's speakers to introduce everyone to the beauty that is country music. They weren't too impressed but oh well, I still think it's the best. Eventually Ben and Lauro went back to the house to get a good nights sleep while Hannah, Ruby, Alex and I stayed out at the hut. We stayed awake for a while playing truth or dare which was basically just truth as there wasn't much we could dare to do haha. So highschool but it was fun. Took me a while to fall asleep as the cement isn't the softest mattress. Woke up in the middle of the night and we had a spider scare ahh!! I prefer to sleep in the house but it was a good/fun experience I guess hehe.
