Our adventures on the high seas and other places
Only 14km from Africa
11 September 2008, Tarifa, Spain

This is the closest point we've been to Africa and they say it's a quick 14km trip or 35 minutes on the huge power cats (apparently built in Tasmania). This is a lovely harbour with lots of history and a lot of wind, making it the windsurfing mecca of the south. We're only here for the night and have just met the lovely couple (build catamarans as a matter of fact) on Manta who will be over soon for a drink. It's a pleasant harbour. Nothing like being surrounded by forts, castles and statues as you watch the sunset over Africa (that's it in the distance).

Quiet harbour
Warm and sunny with cool nights
10 September 2008, Puerto Sherry, Spain

We overnighted in this quiet harbour with an uncluttered beach and nothing but a fabulous marina with small marina village. We found wifi at last and are sorting out a few things, like trying to get Sam home for the school holidays at an affordable rate. Seems our trusty STA travel agent in Australia can get us the best price. With English not being spoken widely in Spain makes it tricky to have in depth discussions about travel plans. We're heading for Gibraltar and hope to be there by Friday night.

Stop over in Antequera
1 September 2008, Antequera, Spain

We were just outside of Malaga yesterday when David, Veolaīs son, called to say there was a problem with Veolaīs flight. So, we decided not to head home but stop overnight in this lovely town of Antequera. Here are some of the best examples of Spainīs past including the remains of a Roman bath house, since covered by the existing town and then rediscovered. It has an old moorish castle and plenty of gorgeous castles etc.
