... me a tour, and she had the individual room available, so I took it as a sign, and stayed. Leslie (the owner) took me with her to go shopping in town (left a note on the door for other pilgrims), and off we went in her Renault 4 (yikes!!!) and picked up prawns for dinner. When we got back, there were 4 other pilgrims waiting (Kuhn and son from Belgium, and Christine and Nicholei from germany).
We had a fantastic dinner (the prawns were out of this world) and evening ...
... to explore the Ria further and went to the very top and anchored in Ensenada de San Simon. Very pretty. While searching for a place to anchor we saw around 6 dolphins mooching about - that was real cool.
The following morning we headed for Baiona.
The old town of Baiona is very nice, small but nice. The views of the Ria and the Atlantic are magical as you stroll on the outside of the castle walls.
Great bars and restaurants.
... either reopen or it's supper time.
We happened upon the market as the stalls were clearing up for the day. Bought some shell fish and having spent a little bit of money at this one stall, the owner threw in some local crabs for nothing.
When we got back we ventured in Combarro and enjoyed the local wine in some delightful little bars. This is the life!
... ended up anchoring off Combarro and this anchorage was half stunning and half industrial with the paper mill on one side heard and seen in the background.
The following day we took the dinghy and ventured into the village and boy what a village this is. The old town is just gorgeous with it's grain stores, farm/ plots, hidden chapels and unusual architecture. we just love it!!!!
... the train to Santiago. What an amazing place.... so atmospheric and you could feel the spiritualism - there were loads of groups/clubs/whatever on their pilgrimages and the place was just buzzing - maybe because we were there before the siesta hours!!!!
When we got back after a very enjoyable day we moved on to another anchorage (which is another entry).
