Short passage in quite big seas this morning from Addaya to Fornells. Previous evening, within few minutes after returning to Ticketeeboo just after dark, we were asked to vacate the buoy we had picked-up a week earlier. It seems it belongs to a local 'association' and they wanted us to move off their buoy. We obliged willingly but were unhappy with the lack of space amongst other yachts at anchor so ultimately made a decision to pick-up an alternative buoy, which we were happy to use until we departed this morning.
Fornells is also a lovely anchorage. Even better when considering our unrestricted swinging room on hook. We dropped in a 5.5m patch, well off the shoreline and settled back into 10m with 40m chain out. We're not going anywhere unexpected tonight!
It was a good row to shore to collect our friends Gillian, Andrew and Adam and we spent another happy day together. They fly home tomorrow and we move-on towards Mallorca (in sunshine with fair winds, hopefully?).
Night night R, J, M & P. Also night night F, S, T & S xxxxx
