We left our home for the last month this morning. Adios Pantalan 4, you have been kind to us!
Now the purists out there, and those that don’t understand sailing, will no doubt wonder if we are ever going to sail anywhere now we’re on our own. Well yes we will, but to be honest it’s a bit difficult when the wind is doing this.
We did put the genoa up for some of the way (for the uninitiated that’s the small sail at the front). Here’s proof if you don’t believe me, so it was a mixture of motoring and motor sailing.
Well we are now at our next stop, and needless to say we must have been spoilt with Duquesa marina. We are in Fuengirola, and first impressions, which as they say count for everything, it’s a f*****g sh*th*le.
But I am trying to become a better person, so I will give it more than the one hour it’s taken for me to form my opinion before I give a definitive view, which will be mostly based on the quality of the showers and toilets!
However, given the amount of bright pink holidaymakers going in and out opposite us on jet skis and in little power boats, I doubt very much that it will change.
Needless to say even the quality of the majority of the boats we’re surrounded by is ‘poor’!
Take this one for example, which given the speakers on the rails, is probably the equivalent to a boy racers customised Ford Fiesta!
Laters peeps x. Wish me luck.
