Desided to move off mooring buoy in favour of seeing if there was room in this nearby anchorage, were we had previously taken taken a ganda couple of days ago. To our surprise the anchorage was virtually deserted so we could pick our spot and it's delightful so might well spend next couple of nights here. Met up with Atlantic Crossing Group friends Debbie & Jim s/c 'La Perle Noire' who joined us for sundowners last night. Sue says intending to have a swim here because the water is much more settled than of late. I've been in (wearing trunks because I've read that the local barracuda are known to go for the crown jewels) and the water is both warm (28ºC) and very clear. When swimming there were some about too, though be it seemingly content nosing round the seabed so no threat to me covered dangley bits! Sue also says that they do a very good breakfast on the beach here for just €9, which seems a good idea too! Maybe we will take RIB ashore and have a little scout around after lunch?
Nearly forgot, when sitting in cockpit yesterday Sue says "Is that a dolphin or a diver?". We both looked. It was a dolphin less than 5m from us and very graceful too!
