20th Feb LUGO – BOIRO (Santiago de Compostela) (103 miles)

WOW, WOW, WOW ......... look at the view from our ‘bedroom’ window.

This aire is literally a stone’s throw from the beach, with a eucalyptus forest to one side and a bar to the other – however it came at a price, 3€!

Last night it was very cold; freezing outside and down to 2°C in the van, we slept under a duvet, a blanket and a patchwork quilt (and I was still cold). Today the temperature went up to 28° in the van, and even now (9.00 p.m.) it’s 19°, we’ve unpacked our summer clothes!!

This evening, when we were cooking dinner there was a knock on the door; it was a man selling live cockles that he’d dug up from the beach (he sells them to the local restaurants) – guess what I’m having for lunch tomorrow?

When we walked by the sea we saw masses of fish (Henry), don’t know what they were (looked like trout) but they were big 2 or 3lbs.

The blog entries are rather sporadic as we haven’t managed to find any internet for 3 days now (no there aren’t any MacDonald’s around here Henry!), I think it might be because we’re still ‘out of season’ there isn’t actually much open at the moment.
