Arrived in Portugal

Wind was still against us but set off from Baiona on Friday morning. An uneventful trip south,  apart from the echosounder has given up working so we had to navigate carefully. Took down the Spanish courtesy flag and hoisted the Portuguese one at the border.  I thought we’d arrived at 7 pm alongside a pontoon at Viana do Castelo, much later realized it was 6 pm as Portugal is on same time as UK. Very hot but a mist came down overnight almost obscuring the rail bridge by Gustav Eiffel just up river. Attractive town with grand old buildings and narrow streets,  lots of restaurants but have not yet located the bread shop.
