JOURNEY: A Coruna, Carreira, Ferrol, Cedeira, Garita de Herbeira, Cabo Ortegal, Carino, Ortiguera to Viveiro  200kms

WEATHER: Fine and sunny A Coruna to Viveiro

This coast is called the Rias Altas and is full of dramatic coastal scenery from small fishing villages to high cliffs above the Atlantic.

We stopped at Cedeira and walked the Magdalena Beach but headed higher up on the winding CP2205 until we reached the Garita de Herbeira lookout with astonishing views over the ocean.

Just nearby we received a surprise to read a plaque dedicated to Leslie Howard, the English actor who starred in "Gone With the Wind"and other air force men who died in a plane crash off this coast in a secret mission during WW11. Now we know!

We reached the Cabo Ortegal early afternoon and saw the point where the Atlantic Ocean meets the bay of Biscay.

Overnight at Viveiro or rather Covas Beach which was a comfortable spot
