Spain - Mar Menor
29 June 2014
We have remained at anchor in the to be finished marina at the entrance to the mar Menor and used the RIB and shankses pony ( our feet ) to explore a little of the Mar Menor area.
For those that don't know, it's an inland "sea" that stretches for twelve miles and is separated from the open sea by a strip of land a little more than a meter above sea level, it is over developed with high rises in some places but in general it is still very beautiful.
On our way to La Manga, we had the iAd with us to top up the Spanish data SIM card, it was in its very expensive water proof case and in a ruck sack, when we took it out we discovered that the water proof case had failed.
The lithium Ion battery was red hot and the screen was illuminated like something from a horror story, this was my fathers I pad that I bought him to keep in touch and it's fried.... I feel completely gutted by this accident !
We like it here, it is very pretty and we have spent the week relaing and doing minor jobs to the boat as always, my health is improving and I am feeling more capable, lots of swimming !
