Photographer's Note

Image taken from the Park of Gijon in Providence a few days ago, the first beach of Nora and the second city of Gijon.

Gijón (Asturian: Xixón), is a coastal industrial city and a municipality in the autonomous community of Asturias in Spain. Early mediaeval texts mention it as "Gigia". It was an important regional Roman city, although the area has been settled since earliest history. The name was originally applied to a small peninsula presently referred to as Cimavilla, literally "top of village," between two beaches, one of which has a recreational port today. The main port, one of the largest in the north of Spain, is called "El Musel". Gijón has a barely growing population of approximately 277,000 (2006).

I hope you enjoy it!
