The last stop on the Braemar “Choose your own cruise” was La Coruna, Spain. This is a small, charming coastal town. I was drawn to it because it is the home of the oldest lighthouse, La Torre de Hercules. It is very walkable, but also has good transit. During the summer, there is an old-fashioned tram, however from the port, it is easy to get around by bus. The main tourist bus is 3 or 3 A, however 5 also goes to all the same places — and heads out to the suburbs and university. Yes, I ended up taking this one, not realizing how much of a “tour” of the city I was going to have!
It is also a very friendly city — I had several opportunities to practice my Spanish, and even a chance to speak French! It was very pleasant to walk around and see this charming place. Here are some of my favorite pictures.

La Marina Galeries
La Torre de Hercules
The marina had a lovely park with statues.
And there was lots of waves!
This was one of my favorite stops on this cruise — completely surprising, friendly and a mixture of city and nature.
