Checked out Vasco's home. Went for swim, well more of a dip really. It is still the Atlantic (Brr)
General Tumble (AKA Mart) cut my hair. More of a shear really! All over with two noisy snips.
Wednesday 14th July
Set off at 7am for the Algarve. (60 miles) Motored at first then usual broad reach. Buzzed briefly by some larger Atlantic Dolphins. Its easy to see why the Greeks had a myth of Arion being saved by Dolphins. (Constellation in the Eastern nights sky named after it. Called surprisingly Delphinus) Would have been auspicious if we had seen it but nah! Dolphins are amazing. Wonder if Chris has seen any Sporadic ones. As we turned the corner at Cabo Sa Vincente the swell disappeared instantly. Hoo blooming ra!
