Buggeru's modern ruins

So, after that interesting 30 mile stretch of coast from Ancient Rome we found the marina at Buggeru, also having seen better times. From the coast we could see the shells of buildings climbing the hill and just two people
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.
