Praia was interesting, lively, quite affluent in the centre (plato). Next time if I come across George or his replacement I won't be paying him much to do very little and definately won't lend him my snorkle mask which he vever returned claiming that the boys had pinched it. William felt sorry for him and no doubt as a drug addicted homeless young man he has little prospects other than the take as much as possible from the occasional yacht. For the whole stay in Praia ours was the only yacht in the bay so his pickings are undoubtedly meagre.
We followed Don Streets guide for the entry to Porto da Furna and as he predicted someone ashore directed our anchorage and beconed for a line ashore. Managed to get the line round the prop almost immediately so after clearing that William mangaged to row a line across and now we are secure between anchor and shore line.
Now after recovery nap from the overnight torture, a trip ashore in the offing to explore Brava- hopefuly a minibus up to the main town, Nova Sintra.
