A Day in the Life of Galicia - Seaside Cambadoe

Galicia has two famous offerings: seafood and wine.  We spent a day to visit the mussel farms, a winery in the coastal community of Cambados, and an evening enjoying the authentic Galician cuisine and the music of Spanish bagpipes.

The boat owner was so excited to take us out to see how mussels were farmed, harvested.  They also steamed plenty for us to taste with wine.

 With wine and steamed mussels, what a life.

The Galician dishes, the extravagant awful tasting drink, and the charming bagpipe players:

We leave for Portugal tomorrow.  This concluded our stay in Spain.
