Before I get to that, need to talk about my wet morning. Nope - no rain - just apparently didn't twist the cap on my camelback (drinking water bladder that sits in backpack) on correctly, so, when I tipped my pack on its side to pack to leave this morning, I had a liter of water immerse the entire pack. Oops. It looked like I wet my bunk bed ;(. Luckily, the beds have plastic liners, and luckily most all of my stuff is in plastic bags. But the pack was soaked through, so I used ...
... hill for dinner. Met 2 great couples from US (Seattle and Detroit). First meal where everyone spoke English. I have to admit I miss Jose - my Spanish speaking Portuguese friend.

Start: Ponte de Lima, Portugal
End: rubieras, portugal
No moleskin today and no blisters!!! ...

Stats: Start: Tamal, Portugal End: Ponte de Lima, Portugal 20.38 miles 48076 steps Blisters - 0!!! (Need to buy stock in moleskin!) Bubba lost more items - getting smaller each ...
Sadly we left Combarro and headed south for the next Ria. There was little bit of wind so we got a pretty decent sail in.
We anchored in one of the first bays, it was quite crowded actually. Being a weekend the beach was full of people - mostly naked people we discovered after settling in. Not because of the sights but due to the swell we reanchored closer to the headland where we hoped there would be less rolling about.
The following morning ...
