the magic of Muxia

So - having arrived at Santiago de Compostela on our train from Burgos, amidst pilgrims and tourists, we picked up our hire car and headed for our idyllic bed and breakfast Casa De Lema - our home for four nights.
the 'horreo' at Casa de Lema, a traditional Galician grain store

The welcome, at 11.30 at night, with an amazing four course meal including locally caught razor clams, a bottle of Alparino wine and smiling welcoming hosts, set the scene for a wonderful week.  So here are a few snaps of Casa de Lema and our amazing meals - spot the Pulpa de Feria (yes, octapus tentacles!!!!)
well, did you get it right?
Just a short drive to Muxia, a little port with a cheerful mix of buildings old and new, right in the heart of the Galician Costa del Morte, and we started our adventures there . . .

and managed to hit market day and the source of some of our treats back at Casa de Lema 

 yes, you spotted it - the pulpa before being pulped!!
and in the next few days, we venture up and down this fastinating and beautiful celtic coastline.  To follow our adventures in the next episode - read here . . . .
