    Coruna to Muxia

    West west west but now with a little bit of south as we come along the Costa del Morte. Still great scenery but this coast is long sandy beaches broken by craggy rocky cliffs and big estuaries, there are now offshore rocks and reefs to think about but maximum rise and fall of tide is 4m. That said the Atlantic swell can definitely add to that. There are fewer marinas now with greater distance between them. Not very many Spanish on this part of the coast seem to have boats. There are your old guys in the traditional small wooden whalers out in all weathers fishing, or at least not being at home, not seen them catch anything! But very few pleasure boats. We travelled from Coruna to Corme a little fishing Port with abandoned viveiros, which we think are mussel beds, where we anchored for the night and then on to Muxia a big empty marina but staff lovely and managed to do some badly needed washing. Corner was interesting, after we had anchored up a guy in a little boat came out and laid his prawn pots all around us, luckily he lifted them early or we might have been trapped. Been here Musial 2nights as wind picked up just after we arrived and hasnt eased much but off tomorrow regardless so tablets at the ready and once we are under way I will curl up and 'sleep'.Read more
