We left Gibraltar at noon and sailed north east along the Costa del Sol initially with fantastic downwind conditions. We are currently moored close to Malaga. We had intended to anchor but the sea was far too rolly so we parked in the adjacent marina. The Sierra Nevada mountains form a dramatic backgroud, particularly when the sun set behind them. We are in a space intended for a motor boat, and consequently the quay is too high up for us to be able to exit the boat without some interesting gymnastics! Helen was duly sent ashore to connect the electrics, only to find none of our adaptors fit. She is currently our galley slave and cooking us wonderful smelling fahitas for tea!
