Costa Blanca

02 June 2012 | Spain
We kept the rental car from yesterday and drove to Ronda. The town was interesting with a large canyon dividing the old section from the new. We had lunch at a great restaurant with the best view of the bridge and canyon. The best part of the day was actually driving back to Malaga as we went through a national park and the scenery was extraordinary. The road is A366 and if anyone is ever going to be in this area, put it on your list of must-see’s. Now, the funny thing about the day was Kerry putting regular gas in our diesel car. He had asked the woman who dropped it off and she said Si, but there was a communication gap for sure. The car coughed and sputtered until we filled it with more diesel to dilute the mix.

At 8:00pm we left the harbor and motored through the night as there wasn’t any wind again. We found a nice little cove (cala) to anchor in and spent the day there. This is the Costa Blanca section of the Spanish coast and it’s even prettier then Costa del Sol. The mountains fall right into the water and the terrain is rugged. I bet Dave that it would take 30 pulls on the outboard motor for the dingy to start as it hadn’t run for 6 weeks but it actually started on the third pull – unbelievable. Kerry and I explored the area with the tender and also by walking the beach. The water was quite cold but we swam anyway because it was the first opportunity we have had to do so.

Sailing Route

Aldarion was the Heir to the King of Númenor. He was a great captain and adventurer, to the dismay of his father, who wished his son to spend his youth on the island he would one day rule. Aldarion, though, felt the call of the sea, and he built himself a vast ship, larger than any that had been seen at that time. He called it PALARRAN, an Elvish name meaning 'Far-Wanderer', and in it he journeyed the Great Sea to Middle-Earth. JRR Tolkien, The Silmarillion
