After leaving Vilamoura we decided that we would head across
the border into Spain and see if we could get on the
internet at the first marina there. We passed Faro on our way along the
coast. We decided that it was obviously a good resort for plane spotters as the
beach is right next to the airport.
Our next stop was Ayamonte which is on the eastern side of
the Rio Guadiana which marks the border between Portugal and Spain. The
entrance to the river can be quite tricky in windy conditions as it is quite
shallow and we were glad once in the shelter of the mole. There is another
marina on the Portuguese side of the river but we decided that we might have
more luck with wifi in Spain - wrong! We
discovered later that we would have had wifi on the Portuguese side.
However we did like Ayamonte apart from the all night discotheque which was
still booming on Sunday morning at 9 am!!!
Entrance to the marina with the
disco just behind the palm trees…
Yes, Richard is still here!
