Robbieroy, the weather in Spain this year is batting records of 30 years! very hot all over. Last tuesday was 44C in Granada and 41C in Madrid, Galicia is less but it hit 35C. hot all over and still for at least thru mid September.
enjoy the visit anyway
cheers

Here are some images from around the golf course. We play at Val de Rois, near Padrón. ..

There is no shortage of wine in the clubhouse


On the first tee


Cooling down the car- it has been unseasonal weather - very hot indeed


On the practice range


Sí señora, nice style


Golf is hard, this makes it harder


This makes it easier


An early morning sun

The first tee


Feeling a little rough!


Early morning light at Val de Rois




Eagles birdies and ... sheep!




And deer, well oh dear!


After a difficult round it was back to Boiro for some home made gazpacho, tortilla and pimientos de Padrón and a nice glass of wine.

Like many others, I enjoy meandering around the old parts of town. Boiro de Arriba (upper Boiro) is an area rich in rural history.



This is the monument at the Church of Santa Baia


And this memorial is found in its grounds


As we continue our climb



We arrive here


We pass lots of old buildings


Some very interesting

I certainly notice the difference thus year compared to last year and the year before.
Andalucía must be suffering!

Continuing our stroll around Boiro de Arriba...

Some fine restored terraced houses


A walled estate


Shades of days long gone by


This may have been a monastry or convent


One of the many crosses




The entrance to the Pazo de Fonteneixe, a stately home


A little bit about the royal road

Part of the Pazo de Fonteneixe estate


The social centre in Boiro


We continue with some more side streets


Nice name for a bar


Buenos días





One misty morning I headed off to explore the road that leads to Cabo de Cruz..

Some side streets on the way



With a curious mixture if the old and new



And expensive

It was a Sunday morning, quite quiet and misty as the walk continued..

past the sports grouns


and more bug houses


then suddenly, up from the beach came these


This shows just how misty it was


An old pier




but not much else to see in the distance


The beach in Boiro has lots of beachfront houses
