We have met S/Y Tina Princess “Father” – what a small world …

July 28, 2014

Hola, blog fellows!

As planned we are still “Ria hopping”. Now we are in Ria Arousa, after 10 days of anchoring we felt we had to feel the luxury of being moored in a Marina. Large scale shopping with a 2.3 m dingy isn’t very practical! We are in Vilagarcia Marina, a friendly, less costly marina (100 € for 3 days). Included in the deal is a bottle of really nice Albarino wine. On our way we where greeted by a couple of Bottle Nosed Dolphins that can weigh as much as 600 kg. This morning Eva shouted – bring the camera. One dolphin was in the marina, very close from our boat!

A couple of days ago we had a Swedish couple and their friends on board for a drink.
The boat owners, Lars and Kerstin from Örnsköldsvik, have had their boat Naranja3, 2 years at La Coruna Marina and where very pleased with the service and location with airports nearby etc. Their friends Christer and Eivor are from Orust. Amazingly both Lars and Christer have worked many years at Hallberg-Rassy boatyard at Ellös, Orust, Sweden.  Christer more than 40 years, and guess what, part of his responsibility was to lead the assembly of ALL HR 49’s! What a small world!
