The Rio Guadiana forms part of the border between Spain and Portugal with a city (and marina) on each side. We are on the Portugese side as Grandma needs to leave to Faro and Norway tomorrow. Wireless internet in a small marina is unexpected. I am writing this from the cockpit where Einar practices multiplication with grandma, and Elin reconnects with friends.Tonight, we discover the annual market in this small town. Tents and decorations coming up in the streets.
The last two nights we have been at Tavira at anchor, a disappointing and smelly river outlet, and Isla Canela, a lovely small marina and a coming tourist resort.
