Ocean Science moored in the marina at Cartagena. 

A line broke in a gale during the night. 

Gregor knew nothing of this on account of heavy sleeping after exhausting

work in the galley.  No damage, and there was no boat on our port side to bash into. 






Moored in Moraira, Valencia.  It is nice to moor alongside a dock

instead of backing into one – in this instance we are just round the corner

from the fuel pumps.  We do not have to get the passerelle out

and it is a simple skip from deck to dock and back again.   


Here, Mike is tying an amazing nautical knot

and Judy and Glenn are discussing where to go for lunch.






Just down the road from Moraira is Calpe with this remarkable

lump of rock.  See the blog entry for 28 January.  

The buildings to the left are life size.






Here is the boat moored at the refuelling dock in Torrevieja,

salt capital of Valencia  See blog entry for 24 January.  

We had a snifter one evening in the Casino building,

which dates from the late 1800s and has amazing decor including this:
