On Monday, Sept 8, we left Valencia for the harbor of Denia, where we enjoyed a great marina looking up at the castle in lights while enjoying interesting new tapas for dinner.
The next two nights we enjoyed anchorages where we could swim and snorkel. The anchorage at the little island of Isla Tabarca provided the extra benefit of dinghying ashore to see the medieval cathedral and small fishing village.
En route we crossed over the Greenwich Meridian which meant we had come "full circle" in our Mediterranean cruise since crossing this same place in the summer of 2012.
On Thursday, Sept 11 we arrived in Cartagena, a large natural harbor used since ancient times. Here the Carthagenians from Carthage (now Tunis in Tunisia) fought the Romans, an event re-enacted in an annual festival. Due to scheduling we didn't stay the extra week for the festival; however, the city was already handing lighted decorations. Every night people were dressed up as Romans or Carthegian soldiers!
The city of Cartagena was a pleasant surprise with a large pedestrian area paved in MARBLE. We enjoyed a gourmet dinner at Le Cathedral restaurant with sections of glass floors built over Roman foundation ruins.
Early Friday morning we reluctantly said goodbye to Carl and Pat who boarded a train for Madrid en route back home to California. We were going to miss their fun company and excellent crew work.
On the dock at the marina in Cartagena, we met another American couple, Rick and Robin from Florida on their 43 foot catamaran, Endangered Species. They graciously invited us for cocktails, and we learned of their world wide sailing over the past 10 years. They are headed back across the Atlantic too this November via the Canary Islands so we exchanged email addresses to stay in touch.
