... as scary like in the daytime. The second day our slight westerly breeze turned out to actually come from the North East, but was not a breeze because it actually managed to blow us about 40 degrees further out than where we wanted to be - better than being blown inshore though I suppose, but with big winds comes high seas - not piddly little 1 metre swells which were forecast, No - bloody big 4 & 5 metre swells which fancied going in the ...
Tomorrow we leave to cross Biscay, we have opted to go to Ria de Viveiro due to a big swell around La Coruna. So after a great nights sleep on our new mooring we were up early preparing for tomorrow which will be the biggest voyage of our adventure so far.

The rest of the day we spent foraging in the bay, we found razor clams, cockles, mussels, lob worms and peeler crabs. ...
