After a day of walking from Tui to Redondela, and not enjoying it as much as we thought, we decided to simply take the train to the next night’s accommodation in Pontevedra, enjoying scenery along the way.
I started the day though with a walk in Cesantes, along the beach and round the block.
For some reason I didn’t write much of a blog post or a journal entry that day. I took loads of photos though.
I did write this note in my journal:
I really miss that early morning cup of tea. The only place we’ve been able to make our own cup of tea was at the funny little hotel at Tudela where we had a kitchen at our disposal. Otherwise I have to get up, get dressed and go down to the bar or wherever to get something. And then it’s usually a tiny cup that’s gone in 2 or 3 sips.
Drinking water or fizz from a bottle just isn’t the same…
This photo from close to Hotel Antolín in Cesantes by the sea still makes me laugh, every time I see it:
10 September 2015: There were actually two pedestrian crossings like this on this road with no footpaths.
After I posted this on my blog a friend left an astute comment:
That is really weird. It’s a speed bump, yes? Why they couldn’t put the right sign beside it, goodness knows!
It hadn’t occurred to me it simply had the wrong sign, but that’s a great explanation.
When we arrived in Pontevedra we strolled round the old city. Pontevedra was a lovely place, with interesting buildings, and some beautiful bridges and sculptures. We had a very pleasant time wandering around.
One thing we were constantly astonished by in Spain were the counters with a big variety of fresh fish in the supermarkets.
