  • Day136


    August 29, 2017 in Spain

    And we keep on heading west, after leaving Gijon we moored to Cudillero a lovely little town and harbour. There is no marina but fore and aft bouys in theory, we arrived just after lunch and inched in initially it look like a wall of rock but then opened up. We could see the 'Transito' bouys yellow not red, but the lines were all tangled so being John he decided to untangle at least one by cutting and threading it from the other and retying. We had a nice quiet night and were safe on our untangled mooring. After sorting mooring John rowed us to town for coffee, so much nicer and cheaper in Spain than France, and we walked through the little lanes to the top of town. Sadly when it came to rowing back we realised dingy was a bit flat, when we got on board boat we found out someone had dropped a fag butt in dingy and it had burns tiny hole in floor and side before going out. Some people are so nice. Any way it was fairly easy to repair just a nuisance, next day we motored to here, Ribadeo on the Asturias Galicia border, passing Tapia on the headland, very built up. The coast line is a bit more like we are used to now with rocks to avoid. Tomorrow we are busing to Lugo with its 2.5km Roman wall around it another Unesco site its all about culture!Read more

  • Day37

    One of Galicia' most visited beaches, this spot is about 18 km from Ribadeo. A coastal walking path is available, but a group of 8 of us opted for the cab option. At 15€ each way, and four in a cab, it's a very quick and affordable way to get there.

    We had found tide information on line and we're lucky that the next low tide was at 9 pm. It's very important to go at low tide. Since sunset is at 10:15, we had plenty of daylight. We got there around 8 and quickly understood why this place is so popular. In summer they limit access with a ticket system. We read that the limit on the beach at any one time in high season is 2,000. Before the tickets, the crowds reached an unimaginable 10,000! For our visit, there were people there, but nothing close to a crowd. It was a pretty great way to end the day.

    One of our little band of four is hoping that another day on the bus will be good for her feet and that she will be walking again soon. We are headed for a town about 28 km and one killer hill away.

    Have arrived in Galicia

    June 21, 2017 in Spain

    We took a long detour today, and we walked to at least five or six amazingly beautiful beaches. This is just a gorgeous part of the country. We ran into several other pilgrims, a couple of young Americans who had just graduated from college, a Spaniard trying to find her way, and then a smattering of French and German couples.

    Each beach was more beautiful than the next, and we had a hard time picking out our favorite. At one of them, we met a very nice couple from the area. They insisted on sharing their food with us, and wanted to know all about the Camino. It was a really nice day. The entrance into town is not so nice, because it consists of walking over a bridge that is about a mile long. But here we are, and no surprise, the weather has changed. Rain is in the forecast, but we have had such a large number of beautiful walking days, that it would be really selfish to complain about a little rain now.Read more

    Ribadeo (15.06 -16.06)

    June 15, 2017 in Spain

    After sleeping long, organising some stuff and noting my actual calculation I decided to take one more private room in the next village. I said “Goodbye” to the lovely host family and just crossed a huge bridge from Asturia to Galicia and checked in at the “Galicia Hostel” in Ribadeo. I ate and slept again not sure if the symptoms indicate a cold or a ruff allergic reaction.. FUCK!

    One evening I talked once more with to a funny, extrovert Brazilian waitress at the next bar till we got interrupted by an drunk older brazilian guy. I decided to leave this uncomfortable situation. This was the only more or less interesting happening in Ribadeo.

    I decided to stay one more night.
