39:59.927N 03:49.74E Ciutadella, Menorca: Went to Market where J bought more vegetables and a scorpion fish to be baked in the oven. Broused around the shops before returning to Bootlegger where we made preprations to leave. Plan is to move around to a Cala on the south coast for a couple of days whilst winds are light.


17:00, we finally slipped our mooring and headed out into a sloppy sea although the wind had dropped to around SW 8 kn. Being on the nose we motored down the west coast and around the corner onto the south coast where we finally settled in Cala Macarella, a delightful small bay with two beautiful beaches which, we found out later, were designated as nudist beaches. After selecting a suitable spot to anchor amongst the several vessels present we dropped the hook. One look over the side put paid to any thoughts we had of an evening swim. The water was full of jelly fish. J made the most delicious rissoles I have ever tasted for dinner accompanied by a salad and sauté potatoes.
