We arrived in Estepona about 4pm (local time) and had to moor up at the waiting pontoon. Yoyo decided she wanted to see what dry land was like (it’s been a while since she’s been on Terra firma) She seemed to quite like it but eventually settled back on deck. Stephen meanwhile went off to sign us in. We had booked a berth here a few days ago.

This is one of the more expensive marinas we have stayed in on our travels – but we did get a welcome bottle of wine and free wifi.
This evening we met up with a friend, Dave, who has a holiday villa in this area. He very kindly flew out especially to deliver a bag of cat food for Koshka and Yoyo. They really do love him now J I’m sure that was his real reason for coming out here and the golf is a side issue. We then went out for a brilliant Italian meal with Dave.
