A couple of good reasons for heading out to the far west are that we have never been to this part of Spain and this is the area where they produce Abariño wine, one of Jo's favourites. Unlike the south this is very green as it is kept cooler and wetter by the Atlantic weather systems.
First stop was the supermarket in Vigo to buy some local wine. Yes you can do wine tours, and we have done a few, but if all you want to do is try ...

We went to the gym early this morning but half the ship seemed to have the same idea - it was crowded to say the least - maybe we need to choose a different time. This afternoon we were surrounded by a huge pod of dolphins- but needless to say as soon as Brian got his camera set up they disappeared! I did manage one shot ...
