I'm heading back to Boiro in Galicia on holiday to stay with some good friends. Most of the time will be taken up playing golf but I hope to get out and about a fair bit to savour the sights and sounds and of course the gastronomy of Galicia.



The journey starts this evening with a flight to London and an overnight stay in a hotel, before an early morning flight to Santiago de Compostela.

It was market day in Ribeira so we headed the 20 or so kilometres along the coast of the Arousa estuary..







The town house or Ayuntamiento


One of the many narrow streets down by the port





The market is held down by the port




Incredibly fresh produce


It is a big outdoor market


Right at the water's edge

Love market day. Stumble on it once in a while. The best ones are like this one without tourists. Usually but some fruit, citrus. Always trying to stay healthy on the road.Have to be careful what we eat and drink when we are far from home, especially solo travelers.
