The marina is first class and must have been built
with some EU funds as there is a lot of room. There is also an older marina next
door which is one third empty.
berths of which I guess 150 are used
The marina is also huge and consists of one very
long wide pontoon with branches off.

Very cleverly they arrange the boats so it looks
quite full from the land. The facilities are excellent with a small shop and
restaurant on site. They are offering deals on berthing so if you stay four
nights you get 25% discount which makes it very reasonable. So I booked
four days but it looks like I will be here until Sunday as the wind direction is
against me setting off again.
I got the bike out and had a ride around the
headland which was great. There is a lot of history here with a settlement since
the dinosaurs were around. The tower of Hercules is a lighthouse.
Originally built by the Romans and
claimed to be the oldest operating
is a lot of public art and
I particularly like this sculpture with the
fountain being directed to create the wake. As usual there is an imposing
course a nice sandy beach
I am keeping myself busy doing the jobs I have been
putting off because they are horrible. The engine is now serviced with new
filters. The worst job though was taking the faulty level gauge sender unit out
of the holding tank and repairing it. You don't want to know what the tank
holds................but there is about 20 gallons of.....it.
As I said hopefully, I will be on my way on Sunday
but it all depends on wind direction and strength.
