After a busy morning spent exploring the Playa de Catedrales and a side trip inland to a tiny village with a famous church, we then headed into the town of Foz for a snack.
The bar there served up cañas of beer along with some unusual tapas: a stew of bacalao (cod), potato and cabbage in a buttery sauce along with tough little red sausages on bread. Al didn’t like either the stew or the sausage, and neither did some of the Spanish people, who waved off the free food.
Not me. I ate it all and Al’s too, and that was my lunch – all for the price of two cañas of beer: 2€40.
Afterwards we went beach and lighthouse hopping along the north coast on our way to Viveiro.
