Goodbye Gibraltar

13 September 2011 | Babate
We said goodbye to Gib etc and will miss Jeff who always makes me laugh - not always intentionally but never mind. We motored to Babate yesterday having to start slightly later than planned as we found the Marina office in La Linea had changed its opening hours and was only open for 3 hours Sunday - very helpful!

We are now in Babate where the marina is surrounded by grim, grey concrete walls and buildings giving it prison-like feel - not welcoming to look at but the showers are clean and there is a washing machine. The marina bar is a bit pricey and the newly opened bar on the road out has already closed, hardly surprising as when we went in last summer the service was dire and the wifi wasn’t working.

The nearest supermarket, a Supersol, is 20 minutes away after an often smelly walk through the fish dock and the town is a further 10 minutes. It is no fun in the heat. There is a long sandy beach and some nice bars etc in the town and on the promenade. This year there was a lot of rubbish floating around the marina between the boats which will be a slight worry when we want to leave, not wanting to suck any into the injection pump inlet.
