Fuengirola to Adra

24 July 2014

We woke in the morning to quite a heavy fog, which from what Paco (Ellen's husband) had said was unknown for this time of year. We sailed in the light breeze that blew away the fog but it died out just before midday, so on went the motor.....we need to keep moving, as we were a week behind where I wanted to be at this be able to cover the distance in the time frame that has been set, we need to average 30nm a day, which doesn't sound much.....but when you put in lay days in port or at anchor this quickly bumps up the mileage and you need to put in some long days to go the distance. With no set destination for the day we pushed on until about 20:30 before pulling in and anchoring in the lee of the harbour wall at Adra, had a quick feed and into bed, ear plugs night again, as an all night party was happening (we think it was a wedding) in a marquee on the outer harbour wall...they played some good music early on....but some seriously bad tunes in the early hours....not the best of anchorages..
