On Friday 7 August Doris, John, Andy and Paddy commenced our journey. we flew to Santiago in Spain via City of Derry and Stansted. Before leaving Derry we had a celebateary meal at Halos and we were taxied there in style in Jonathin’s vintage Jaguar. This set the tone for our holiday. Everything after that was measured by that.
We arrived in Santago and set foot on the boat which was moored at Sada Marina, at lunchtime, in N.W.Spain. First drink of the day to celebrate our onward journey, then off for provisions. Commenced a spread sheet indicating our wine preference, price and name, regular grocerices as of home.
Sailed short journey from Sada to La Coruna. Fabulous city. well worth going into. Everyone very friendly. We had the fish of the day and wine recommmended to us. Andy’s spanish is very impressive. The last time i was in spain , which was three wks previous, i ordered fish and got the speciality which was black Black Pudding.
