A Guarda
Now we were on the final stretch, down the west coast of Portugal. A gentle breeze took us past Baiona, but fizzled out before we left Spanaish waters just short of A Guarda, so we motored in and tied up to the key. I went to find a fisherman and asked him if we could borrow a buoy, and he gave me a choice of two.

After picking up the mooring, we went in search of a retired fisherman and his family who wed met in 2006. Theys seen us coming in, and we duly met the whole family again to enjoy dinner overlooking the harbour on the veranda of a cottage hed just inherited from his father.
