Last night the marina staff were disappointed we still hadn’t been to the local beach. Hence we were under strict instructions to attend at midnight. At 11pm we headed down to the local beach. This turned out to be another Spanish fiesta/tradition. The beach was absolutely packed with families having picnics around beach fires all celebrating summer solstice. Tradition has it that at midnight everyone enters the sea and lets 7 waves pass over your legs for good luck.


After a hectic few days today we took it easier. We went shopping for food in the morning and slept in the heat of the afternoon. Anne is getting quite good at asking for an Apple slice and a Danish pastry in Spanish. This evening Stephen prepared some salads with the fresh veg we bought.


As it’s got much hotter recently we decide it was haircut time again, so we cut each others hair. After showers we had dinner of the delicious salads. We were just thinking how warm and still the evening was when the wind suddenly picked up to a F5. We are currently sitting on deck with a nice warm but strong wind blowing.


Koshka and Yoyo have a good routine for the hot days – they just sleep during the day and then when the sun goes down they become active.  


Anne has finished hand stitching the leather on the steering wheel.
