Day 37: La Caridad to Ribadeo

Church of Salave (top)

Ribadeo is the destination for today (left)
I decided to stay on the N-634 as I was trying to gain one final rest day later on at Mondonedo

Unlike the wider N-632, this road did not have a handy verge. Shortly after this point, there was a minor road parallel to it which I thought would rejoin it further on .....

..... I was wrong and this route took me inland away from the coast!

I made a lucky guess and ended up back on track ......

... and after resting in a handy roadside cafe I was soon approaching Ribadeo (left)

which had the most fantastic views out seawards as well as upriver (above & below)

A good view of Ribadeo town and its harbour

Crossing the bridge over the river Ribadeo ....

.... brings me into Galicia

Inside the refugio which is full by the end of the evening

The outside of the refugio at first light!
