As we arrive to the town dock to go shopping, others from Tortugal are also arriving. As you can imagine the edict is the talk of us Tortugal dwellers. Word today is that everything is mostly back to as before. Daphne received a lot of feedback, both from cruisers and marina staff who coordinate the off-hours extra work. It appears it was a culmination of things on that day which had her upset. Smoothed over now. That said, we’ve not received a receding edict email from her, and official communication can certainly not come from other marina staff regardless of how senior. Silence from owner Daphne means all is not yet settled.
While I wash down Vida Dulce, Jerry takes our power tools and the teak to the workshop. He returns with beautifully sanded pieces to install and no notice to vacate.There were others doing work on their boats and in the workshop, and they’ve not been handed walking instrutions so perhaps today’s news it true.
Nonetheless we cannot return to recommending this marina. Too many other choices with perhaps fewer problem retired-drama-people.
