Odd seas but perfect anchorages

On Friday we set off south for the next ria down, the Ria de Vigo. This is one of the most built up rias, as it houses Vigo, probably the largest city in the area.

It was beautifully sunny, but the wind was bizarre; always in the wrong place and dropping from a good, sailable speed to nothing seemingly at random. The result was the what should have been a relaxed, short sail down to the next ria became unnecessarily ...

... 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 ...
