... the sun beating down on it.
San Vicente looks like a lovely little town, so it's a shame we won't be able to see more of it, but we're making as much progress as we can while the wind's in our favour. Our fridge isn't working at the moment, so we're hot-footing it to A Coruna as quickly as we can so we can get it fixed.

We got off the train and went directly to the ticket machine ...
It was another perfect day when we woke. Bread and Nutella for breakfast then we put our swimmers on and set off to enjoy the day. We walked the coast line, stopping at each little beach and headland to take photos and chill out with the other beach loving locals.
