Finding ourselves in fog and rain with the visibility down to 50 meters we used the radar to navigate our way out of this Ria. It was made difficult by the many floating oyster beds everywhere. The Furuno radar picked them up just fine (actually amazingly accurate) and we had no problems keeping clear of them and other boat traffic. Finally we broke out into sunshine and motored along once again enjoying the sights.

As we wanted to be in a position to continue our passage south we decided to spend the night in Baiona. There was a nice marina with a mooring buoy for the night at the Monte Real Club. After mooring up they came out in their motor launch to take us to town. Nice service as then we didn't have to drop our dinghy. Baiona is definitely worth a stop and has terrific restaurants and facilities for provisioning.
