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 ...

... and finished the evening outside our caravan. 24th The sky was blue again so the day started good. We got the bus of 11:08 which went into the centre of Pontevedra. We walked around and found all kind of little old streets with hidden squares with terraces, café's and small restaurants which served "pulpe" octopus, so of course we had to try a dish which we never had tried before called Empanada de maíz con mejillones y pulpo made of octopus and mussels covered ...

Everyone on the boats around us was on deck watching the display, all of us enchanted no matter how ...

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 ...

Pontevedra, situated on the north west of the Iberian Peninsula in part of the area popularly known as the Rias Baixas, is the capital of both the Comarca and Galicia. I would have to say this was one of the friendliest placest I have visited. Everyone from the taxi driver who helped me with my luggage to the hotel staff, people in shops, waiters and even buskers were up for a chat. I stayed in a lovely boutique hotel furnished with an ...
