on the beach.
But we soon discovered Buggeru's character, kind of in tune with its name. The nearly silted-up marina, used exclusively by fishing boats and us, has water and electricity and no one in charge so no charge, and the town has a closed hotel, empty houses and the remains of lead and copper mines worked until the '50s. And a shop and a bar.
All of it is surrounded by high, steep and craggy cliffs.
This morning we're going to do a favour for the Cruising Association UK, and take our inflatable dinghy out to measure actual depths around the harbour with a sounding lead.
Then off to points south.
