... to stop and get my boots off and flip flops on before continuing onto Valenca for the night.
The place was gorgeous. An old stone house, beautiful courtyard, vineyard, etc. I ordered a sandwich, and was enjoying the perfect day.
A very friendly Canadian woman came down the stairs from another building, and was very friendly. Came to find out this was her place. The real story is that she did the Camino in 2008 with a childhood friend she hadn't seen for years. ...
Sadly we left Combarro and headed south for the next Ria. There was little bit of wind so we got a pretty decent sail in.
We anchored in one of the first bays, it was quite crowded actually. Being a weekend the beach was full of people - mostly naked people we discovered after settling in.

When we got back after a very enjoyable day we moved on to another anchorage (which is another entry).
