Relaxing at anchor

08 September 2009 | Ria de Ares
Dense fog in the morning. The other boats in the anchorage were no longer visible. 25-30 meters visibilty. Well, a slow and lazy morning is nice too. Unfortunately the fog seem to have a detrimental effect on the wifi waves. No reception now, even though it was fine last night. Same phenomena as in Ria de Cedeiro. So, now almost statistically proven.

Tea, and freshly baked (last night) bread is an enjoyable star of a new day, even without news and weather over the internet. The forecast last night revealed weak and variable winds for today, and tomorrow and Thursday NE Force 5-6 (20 -30 knots or 9-13 m/s).

Still foggy after lunch as can be seen in the photo. We diecided to hang around here a couple of days. Maybe we'll make a bus trip to La Coruna. we don't need or want to get 'stuck' in an expensive marina again for a few days while blow will pass through. This anchorage is provides good shelter and holding and the shore is a mere cable or too away.
