Having enjoyed a few days in Almerimar, we have gone a short distance up the coast to Roquetas de Mar. We intend to anchor here tonight before heading to the next marina tomorrow. Although the sea looks smooth, it is very rolly, but hopefully not too uncomfortable for the night. The coastline is very attractive with mountains in the background and we are anchored off a long beach.
  The beach that Helen and Avril swam to.                                                                   The marina entrance. They don't take boats our size.
Helen and Avril swam ashore, while Peter swam round the boat!  Although very warm, it is overcast here today and rain threatening. Last night we had spectacular thunder and lightning, but no rain. It is forecast to improve on Friday.
       Low cloud over the mountains.                                                               Still too warm for clothes though!
