Day 2 O Porrino to Arcade 14.5 miles It looked like rain all morning, but we lucked out and didn't get wet. As a result it was cool and a little breezy until the afternoon when the clouds lifted and the sun came out. We kept putting on and taking off our windbreaker. The little village where we are staying is on the edge of Ria de Vigo, an enormous river that looks more like a lake- beautiful views through the valley down to the shore.

... The one we have loved is Vino Verde- it is called a green wine and has an effervescent quality to it. it is delicious on a hot day after a long walk.

... could almost call it a day of bridges (Ponte) because of all the ancient bridges we crossed. The town where we are staying says it is the oldest town in Portugal and as you can see from the bridge why it is called Ponte de Lima (Bridge over the river Lima). It is a beautiful little town with lots of tourists. We will stop in one more Portuguese town tomorrow night then it is Adeus Portugal and Buenos Dias Spain. We look back on the 300 plus miles we have walked so far and ...
