No room at the Inn

No room at the Inn 08/09/08

We arrived back in an almost full Vila Real where after trying to squeeze us into the wrong sized berth (we later realised that the marinairos we given the wrong number by mistake as we watched while they failed to fit a Dutch yacht in the same space an hour later!) So we ended up on the outer pontoon for large Cats, which proved to be rather turbulent but we couldn't move as the engine, a little considerately stopped just as we moored. One of the young marinairos organised an electrician who spoke no English but he helpfully stayed around to translate. We asked if there was room for us to stay for a fortnight but the office kept being vague and finally said no so we went over to Ayamonte to see if they had space, which they did.

There was an annual Mediaeval festival nearby at Castle Marim but we would be away when it happened but one to look out for in future.
