Fortunately our visit coincided with the local medieval festival of Arribada, meaning arrival. The arrival being celebrated was that of the first galleon to arrive back in Spain after discovering America. The Caravel Pinta landed in Baiona in 1497, giving generations of locals a brilliant excuse to dress up in medieval costume every anniversary, to eat and drink in high style, and even have jousting competitions on the beach.
The sun shone, we ate too much and we had a great time. There was a lot of alpaca natter, and time for planning of the jobs list. We arribadad home last night to -4 degrees and I took a hot water bottle to bed.
