Caín

A couple months ago we visited a village called Caín in the Picos de Europa. An incredible place to visit, and the hike along the gorge was absolutely breathtaking…especially when there are no guardrails and you have a 5 year old.

Village visit

On our way back from an errand we decided to visit a village which we hadn’t been to. We met a really nice couple who showed us around their grove of chestnut trees, pointed out routes to hike, and even sent us home with a bag of their garden potatoes.

On the sea

We took a day to visit the sea with our friends. My goal was to find a petrified sharks tooth. This is how the story unfolded.

Me: “How do you find sharks teeth?”IMG_4246

Her: “You just look for little slivers…like the one you just about stepped on.”

Her: “See, that was a sharks tooth that you missed. I will now add it to my collection and leave you green with envy.”IMG_4264

Her: “Let me count out all the sharks teeth I have found today in front of you so that you feel incompetent.”IMG_4266

Me: “Thank you.” *walks away with head down*
