Odd seas but perfect anchorages

... day. We'd hoped to sail our way up the ria, but the wind was well and truly dead, so we chugged along slowly and admired the scenery.

We were heading under an enormous bridge to the Enseņada de San Simon, a large bay too shallow for most boats to navigate, but being a very shallow boat ourselves this wasn't a problem. After trundling about for a while trying to find the best spot, we anchored up at one end, houses ...

... and finished the evening outside our caravan. 24th The sky was blue again so the day started good. We got the bus of 11:08 which went into the centre of Pontevedra. We walked around and found all kind of little old streets with hidden squares with terraces, café's and small restaurants which served "pulpe" octopus, so of course we had to try a dish which we never had tried before called Empanada de maíz con mejillones y pulpo made of octopus and mussels covered ...

We spent a few days in Muros and the ria around it, stopping in at Portosin for a couple of days before heading back to our previous anchorage, where An Incredible Thing happened.

I was out in the kayak exploring the nearby shallows, where the sun was dancing enticingly on the sand just below the water. I was on my way back to the boat when I saw ...

... spent a lovely afternoon wandering the streets listening to the buskers, many of whom were pipers and bagpipers. Some sort of demonstration was going on at one one stage. No idea what it was about as I couldn't read the placards but I suspect it was something about conservation of the river. The rain came down that evening so after dinner spent the evening writing with an Irish coffee in the cosy lounge of Hotel Rias Bajas. What a tough life ...
