A brief note to say that we have arrived in A Coruna, after another day of motor sailing.
We motored into the town at about 5pm, past the new marina behind the mole where the anchorage used to be. We came to the marina in the town centre - Darsena la Marina - which used to be municipally owned but is now all part of the Real Club Nautico Coruna, THe portacabins that were thare 2 years ago are still in situ: and, again, they are still building permanent accommodation! The fee is about 31 euros a night which Roger thinks the same as last time we were here two years ago.
We were met by a mariniero, who came to take our lines but there were a load of Brits off other boats ready to do the necessary, so y'man just stood and watched!
We have an internet connection, coutesy of the Club Nautico, and also access to teh club, provided that we are appropraitely dressed, ie no shorts!
Shopping and renewing acquaintaince with the city tomorrow.... All of a sudden the lack of failiarily with Spanish will strike home...
