Simes is now  16nautical miles behind us. It is 1730 and the sun is shining as well as a really good wind on our beam so she is steaming along.
I took a few more pictures before leaving Simes.
This is the castle which seems to just comprise a wall but it is definitely not a ruin and obviously much loved.
This is the marina with the beach in the foreground. The tractor rakes the beach every day and the machine seems to pick up the litter as well.
Ok enough beaches.......
If this wind keeps up I wil get to Cabo de Sao Vicente by midnight when I then turn left or East towards Gibraltar. If all goes well I will be in Portimao early in the morning..
