... An old town without the picturesque beauty of others we have seen. Spending an hour in the town, we next were off to a wine tasting at a winery in the country. We took a tour of the facility learning their process of producing about 1.5 million bottles of wine per year. Then we had wine and a light lunch. If that was a light lunch, I'd hate to see a big one. They brought out 9-10 plates of different things to ...
Well this is the second time I have written this, as the one I did last night disappeared and I was so miffed that I closed it up and went to sleep.

We have a gigantic salad in a place called Silos (or similar) which has a few tables on a promenade above the bay. The view is brilliant, with the sea in front of us and mountains behind.
