Over the weekend we visited the old Shellfish Farm near Rinlo. Rinlo is about 30 minutes from Granero del burro and is a beautiful spot for a drink, lunch or just a relaxing wander. The Shellfish Farm is a few minutes to the West of the village and is well worth a visit. It is just over a 100 years old and the main building housing all the tanks has the most incredible roof. There is also some interesting graffiti inside.
Outside you can see the natural pools where the shellfish were kept although years of being battered by the sea have taken their toll. There are a couple of small islands just off the rocks and it is wonderful place to watch the waves crashing onto the shore. There were Cormorants and Shag together on one of the islands, and Turnstones, Grey Plover and Redshank on the other.
