The western beach at A Coruña. In windy weather it's a surfers paridise and in sunny weather a bathers paradise. Today, being chilly and calm, its empty. Note use of birthday tripod.

Down by the old town walls are so many old streets its easy to get lost. Right maybe, but lets not be hasty?

This arch is the entrance from the river so must once have been very important. Look how steep the street is. Imagine pushing your load up that.
