Up bright and early just before the sun rose this morning. A spectacular sunrise too, worth getting up for! Today we donked-it for just 6 hours - 37NM. We decided to take a look at Cala De San Pedro, where we last dropped our hook on 27/8/2009. It's a lovely bay (in the right conditions) and after some careful study and thought we decided to drop our hook here for the second time in four years. Some beautiful scenery (nudists) because the shore looks like a bit of a naturalists hide-away. Quite likely a bit of a hippy-hang-out too! We've been keeping a watchful eye, of course! Seems there are a couple of taxi-RIBs, which bring people to and fro. Don't think there is any shore power, except solar panels and possibly the odd genny? There was a Cat on the hook when we arrived 'Le Mischief' and we had a chat before they left, going east. They say one nude guy they met ashore has lived here in a cave for 16 years! Sun's gone now and looks like more tourists are leaving. We're hoping for a quiet night........... meaning we hope the shore-music will discontinue before dark. It will be interesting to see if the shore people party 'till late or simply go quiet for the night? We suspect the latter. Maybe they all get their washing done in the dark?
Longer day on the move for us tomorrow, nearly twice a many miles as today) heading towards Puerto De Adra (where there should be room for us to drop our hook) as we continue to make our way towards Gibraltar. Never know, we might even get a sail tomorrow (after another early start).
For now it's 18:15 and yet another G&T!
