Up this morning, not too early, at 07:30 so that we could catch the 10:00 opening of the bridge at Puerto Tomas Maestre. Pity really, having to do nearly 10NM due N, which was entirely wrong direction for us. Being the only way out of Mar Menor, however, nevertheless absolutely essential otherwise no passage towards Gibraltar!
Initially, we made our way towards Mazarron, where we thought we could drop hook overnight. Unfortunately we have a persistent SW fetch making Mazarron less than ideal, unless fancying a really rolly night there! Hence, we kept going couple hours more and are now in a lovely well protected bay (for these conditions). No other yachts here so were all alone and it's lovely and calm and local scenery is unspoiled so we are well pleased with our choice tonight - a little further than originally intended and quite lovely none-the-less!
