Camarinas

Leaving Coruna under a grey sky a notable landmark was the Tower of Hercules. This was built by the Romans and is the oldest functioning lighthouse in the world. A sail of some 35 miles some engine assisted as the winds were so light lead me past more rugged coastline and past the rocky islas Sisarga  and then having passed Punta del Roncudo I turned into the Ria de Corme Y Laxe. Here I anchored of the beach at Laxe for the night.  I woke in the night to thick fog but it had cleared by morning and it looked like a lovely day  was in store.  Sailing past more rugged coastline was the order of the day and with plenty of unmated offshore rocks about due diligence must be paid to careful navigation. Rounding the spectactual headland of Cabo Villane I entered Ria de Camarinas. The fishing village of Camarinas is in another of the delightful rias atlas. It is more or less unspoilt and less developed than previously visited ones. That eve I ate barbecued sardines  at a bar. But you wouldn’t get these sardines into a tin, they were about 8 inches long. They cook them on the roadside outside the bars and serve them on a plate with just some fresh bread, no knives or forks just eat with your fingers. They were  delicious.
