Cruising the Rias

Exploring the Rias of  Arousa and Pontevedra over the last couple of days has been very gentle. Wind no more than 10 knots, beautiful beaches to anchor off,and peaceful nights with no dragging anchors. But today brought patches of very thick fog as we headed to Punta Cabicastro, clearing suddenly at times to reveal the rocky shore and islands. The radar helped with navigation.

James, Lizzie and Rob went diving  - and saw squid, starfish and an angry octopus.

We have come up to the top of the Ria de Pontevedra this evening, past plenty of  large"bateas" (floating platforms used for mussel farming, a major local industry), and have anchored tucked in by Tambo Island for the night.
