And quite a jump..... have sailed down the coast, (slowly,
maximum wind strength 10knots!) been to Hammamet, got a fishing thing (2
plastic cans as floats, 3 palm fronds each about 4 foot long ... I`v no idea
what they are for ... and of course loads of rope) Glad to say the propeller
still went round and I got a diver to cut it all clear in Hammamet.
Final point was Monastir (the coords are there) where Paul and
Rachel came out and had a brief few days with me .... Amazing they actually saw
over twenty knots of wind and we sailed up to some islands just off the
coast. After Kaliber the coast became very spanish .... long beaches and
no anchoring spots so marina to marina. And the biggest fish in the sea
....4inches long .... thousands of fishermen though ... so I guess anything
bigger fished out.
Monastir at the south end of the holiday bit ... Tunisian hol
place, good market, and even supermarkets ... food pretty cheap! and long stay
berths also cheap.... Nice people except the policemen who couldn't cope with
sudden appearance of 3 more people on the boat, and then arriving back in the
same port a day later ... all became a bit hairy and long winded .... pity I
didn't have any cigarettes to give them!
Needed a day to recover after P and R then final stock up of
food and away....
