Ciès island anchorage
We are almost through with the Ria's cruise. Galicia offered us some very nice anchorages in the 10 rias visited. The last ones, the largest were different but not for the same reasons. Arusa, huge was mostly a mussels farming ground with commercial and fishing harbors and cannery industry. Pontevedra with its nice beaches a tourist playground set in a beautiful large ria protected by the island on Ons, a national park. We have prefered the smallest one with little fishing harbors where we could anchor behing a jetty or in front of a little marina or yacht club where we could row to fill up some water jugs. We were lucky to have a splendid weather since one month. Hot, sunny, but windless.... But the big cloudless blue sky and calm waters compensated this. The only downside to Galicia, is the water temperature... no more than 62 F. What a pity !!
