Title: Ria Arosa 42:36.01N 08:46.17W

We have been on the move since sardine-time; new ria new places.

We have been anchoring around, as some of the bays are delightful, and certainly more attractive and peaceful than some of the marinas. The position fix will not show all of the stopping points, so you will have to get your atlas' out if you want a detailed check.

Thank you to everyone who is sending us sat phone texts and calls they are really good fun. Just remember to say who you are, and leave an email address (if we do not already have it), if you want a response when we are next in civilisation (ie Internet access ....... sad!).

Christine had to buy some fish yesterday at the local fish market, owing to nothing giving itself up to her fishing charms as we sail along: However they were fantastic fish.

We have come into this marina at Villa Garcia, as it supposedly has good links to Santiago de Campostela, and we are planning a "cultural visit". Although Madrid may be nice if we get the timetable wrong!

Really ought to mention that the last few days have been hot, with blue skies; more like the weather that was ordered before the trip. We understand that you finally got the weather in UK that we had been having (Now you will believe us when we are grizzling!)
