    Valencia

    April 11 in Spain

    Today we drove up to València via Alicante, didn’t see anything in Alicante except high-rise buildings and beaches, but as windy beaches not looking good. València is lovely and the people are very understanding especially the commercial port police. While following the iPod GPS directions we managed to get ourselves to the entrance of the commercial port with all the container trucks, the guy manning the entrance was really sweet he showed us where to u-turn and told us how to get back to town. After we managed to find the apartment and car park we went for a walk around the old town here are some photos. We saw a cute little red squirrel in the gardens that now grow in what was the old river route, the cathedral and basilica. We also visited the Plaza Rotunda (the round square), the Centre Del Carme Cultura Contemporania, an old monastery which was interesting for the architecture and the display of work by Okuda San Miguel very colourful. Photo of type of thing attached. Will be more info and photos tomorrow.Read more

    Valencia update

    April 12 in Spain

    So a full day wandering aimlessly around the city and here are some more photos, we visited the market, the post office, the science museum hemisphere and loads more, can only attach 6 photos so rest to go to Facebook. Had a lovely lunch set menu down near the marina and now having a rest before popping out for tea. Tomorrow we drive back to Almerimar to have my dental work finished do last minute shopping and washing before we continue the trip can’t wait!Read more

    Campello

    April 19 in Spain

    Well that was an interesting trip fairly bumpy at the beginning so we decided against a straight to Ibiza sail, it got better near Santa Pola which was where we decided the revised destination would be so we headed on obviously the conditions then worsened as we headed towards Alicante and were then horrible for the last 4miles to Campello it was gusting up to 27knots but the sea bands did their job so I kept the Jaffa cakes down. 😉 To the west of the marina are lots of high rise but to the east it is a bit less built up, right next to the marina is a small isthmus Islotte de Banyets with ruins of a Roman settlement on top and fish baths on the waters edge see photo 1, 2 is looking East from isthmus, then photos of what look like miniature irises, blooms only inch and a half across also photo of the seaweed growing on the rocky shore as the colours changed the closer to the water they were. Maybe Morayra tomorrow as there is an anchorage there that should work in this wind direction it’s now E, through to North and this Marina costs 40 Euro a night so need anchorages.Read more

    Calpe

    April 20 in Spain

    Bumpy trip from start to finish, considered cutting it short and did but in the end only by 8miles. Am very impressed with the sea bands obviously the last set I had were faulty😉. In the photos you will see 2 gloomy ‘wish you were here’ Benidorm shots, even from a distance it’s awful. If the weather had been kinder though there was some stunning coast but with winds gusting up to 35 we couldn’t go close or stop to look too much. After Benidorm which has a cute little island off shore we went along steep cliff photo 3 and then headed across large bay to Calpe. As we crossed the bay we also crossed the GMT date line photo 5. You could see Calpe from quite a distance due to height of rocky headland next to the harbour photo 4. Once anchored we did some boat jobs tightening stay and final paint coat on scuppers before John rowed us ashore for a coffee tapas and walk. On the walk we saw a salty lake with Flamingos hopefully you can see them OK. This eve we are going to try for Ibiza as wind seems to be dropping, fingers crossed🤞Read more

    Torrevieja

    April 18 in Spain

    So we are anchored up for the night just off the beach, area is very high rise as was most of the coastline to get here I will attach a couple of panoramic shots please excuse wavy horizon but boat wouldn’t stay still. We are currently debating whether or not to do an overnight trip tomorrow to Ibiza. As the coastline here really isn’t much to write home about and Ibiza looks much prettier well at lot less built up that’s for sure. Are lunch stop off Isla grosa, bird sanctuary, opposite the entrance to the Mar Menor was beautiful that’s photo 2. photo 1 was of the lighthouse on Cabo de Palos where the high rise started and the 2 panoramic shots are off the Mar Menor seaward coastline. Hideous we decided therefore not to bother going into the Mar Menor but instead as the sea was flat calm to cover more distance. If we travel to the usual hopping off location for the Balearics it will take us 2more days the coastline for the first day will definitely just be more high rise the second day might be better but while forecast is good we think it best to cross the water.Read more
