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 ...

... corn which tasted pretty good. There was the Iglesia de Peregrinos and the Basilica Santa Maria and San Francisco monasterio that we visited and after a couple of hours we had seen most of the old town so we were pleased to get the bus back and head for the beach for a change. We stayed there with hundreds of young girls and boys that were all on the beach cause it was a holiday in Spain but it was nice and the water crystal clean, a little cold but that ...

We've rather slowed down since I last updated this; the sun's come out and the days have become lazier.

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 ...

... the Gothic Santo Domingo church and the beautiful Renaissance Basilica de Santa Maria. The latter was a very busy operation and obviously keeping up with the times. I had to chuckle at a sign on the notice board inside outlying how parishioners could keep up with church events through their website, Facebook, Blogspot, and even Twitter! I had a delicious lunch in the pretty Praza da Lena, which in days gone by was the old firewood ...
