Baiona to Cambados

Today we followed the coast north to Cambados. It is a beautiful day, by far the nicest day of our trip so far. It is the first day that I haven’t needed my winter coat. 

We saw several interesting things during our drive. Soon after we left we saw a couple of guys scraping something off the rocks, perhaps barnacles?

Later we came across a beach with lots of cars parked and what appeared to be more than 200 people digging clams. 


Once we arrived in Cambados we went for a walk. There are the remains of a tower out on the point. The sign says they don’t know if it was originally built by the Romans or the Phoenecians. 


When we walked through town the streets were pretty much deserted. The stores were all closed from about 2:00 until 5:00. 

Cambados is considered the capital of the Albariño wine country. Albariño is a fruity white wine. We tried it as our free drink at our Parador. I liked it a lot. 

For dinner we had a fun chatty waitress which is unusual here. Maybe the fact that we were the only ones in the dining room made a difference. We both had fish. 


For desert Duke had chocolates, a warm butterscotch crepe and cake. 


I had something we have had a few times before on this trip. I had never heard of it before. It is lucious… cheese ice cream.
