I like the beach here in Boiro, it is a mixture of fine sands and wooded areas, offering plenty of shade.



The wilder beaches appeal more than the highly manicured beaches of the tourist resorts.


Some sculptures line the promenade






One of the many small bridges


an area for the volleyball courts


and information about the wildlife

One morning, we went for an early morning trip to Padron before heading off to the golf course. Padron sits on the Portuguese Camino de Santiago and sees a lot of pilgrims pass through.

Let's explore...

The River Sar


with some interesting architecture


and wooden sculpture


A dominating church on the hill


looks over the narrow bridge


which crosses the Sar


The old town centre....

Weather-wise, the day of the beach walk was probably the worst day. In general and in line with the rest of Spain, the weather was unseasonably hot.
Early mornings had a refreshing coolness to them. This day was no exception as we visited Padron.

I quite like the feel of Padron, especially the casco antiguo.

Its arched walkways


and hints of a much grander past


that echoes in the narrow streets


and squares


Yes please!


The town house or Concello


Evidence of its strong religious past




Before heading to the golf course - a bit of breakfast

Following breakfast of coffee, fresh orange juice and a croissant, it was a short walk back to the car before hesding off to the golf course.

A little practice on the range


Then on to the course

A misty morning on the way to Rois

It has been a great holiday! The main focus was being with friends and playing golf and both those were certainly achieved. The weather was very good and favourable for golf so less day trips were undertaken this year.

I always enjoy the 20 minute drive through the Galician countryside to the club.
Here is a morning of low cloud on one of those drives








I enjoyed the routine of a short practice on the range




before heading out to the course




With its rustic outbuildings




Wee that is it from my trip this year so we now gave to say goodbye to Galicia for another year.

I've just seen a report on Galician TV that this farmacia (to the right of the photograph) in Padron has been in business for 200 years and under the management of the same family.
