On Friday 20 August my sister Sally, Mark her husband and offspring
Robbie and Isla arrived at Portosin having travelled by ferry to Santander and hire car to
Noia the day before. It was really great to have family on board.
A week was spent re-visiting places found previously and finding new
ones en-route back to Bayona. The weather was mostly kind and some excellent
beach days were spent at San Fransisco, Isla Ons and Ria de Aldan. The new
inflatable canoe saw action as did the ancient supermarket canoe purchased as a
beach toy for Andrew and Alice some 15 years ago.
Just to make sure that our guests did not go away thinking that all is
sunshine we awoke in Riviera
to wind, rain, poor visibility and a lee shore anchorage. A rather wet and
windy short sail to Villagarcia and the marina sorted that one out and the
troops disappeared off into the town to recover.
We arrived back in Bayona for a night in the Yacht Club marina and a
farewell dinner ashore at the club. We had all had a very jolly and
Departure was by bus for an afternoon sight seeing in Santiago de
Compostela before flying out the following day.
The boat seemed very quiet and empty as we set too to take advantage of
the marina electricity and water.
