... to shop, so I made a mental note to return on our way out of town after lunch. Big Mistake. We didn't come back the same way! And they were a great bargain, too...
By this time we'd seen a whole lot of churches, (ABC as they say in England, Another Bloody Church) so I wandered through pretty quickly. This one was unique due to the pipe organ added in the 18th century. Because of space constraints, the pipes are laid high up next ...

The French couple, Gwenolyn and Thierry, were there, too. We enjoyed a beer on the patio, dinner, showers, then bed for a 4:30am departure.

... soon (2 days), we still plan to go to Finisterre (the end of the Earth before America was discovered).
The weather has cooled and we are now in Galicia, the part of the country where you eat octupus and see amazingly beautiful scenery with rolling hills and farmland, old stone houses, misty mornings that clear to stunningly clear and beautiful and less hot afternoons. Life is still good even though sometimes you have a pain in the quadriceps.
