Cala de San Pedro to La Azohia

26 July 2014
Stu & Shar
In the morning I was the only one game for a swim to the beach, everyone else was happy to stay onboard, I then climbed up to the Moorish fort, found the source of the spring and had a look around...there was a guy washing in the spring which I saw was piped to the rest of the community down the hill, I hope they boiled it before they drank it !!! .....it definitely was a hippie commune along with a few interesting sights and smells...a joint has a distinctive smell in the morning and there were a few bleary eyed people staggering about naked.....As we left the bay, we again had an unknown destination, just to push as far as we could before sunset....It was another motor sailing day, so not much excitement on the sailing front....more wind please 'Hui' and not on the nose would really help..... this being the Costa del Sol we saw a few ugly sights including a hotel that was built illegally (see pic) which has been painted 'Hotel Legal' ??...apparently the demolition order is still being fought over in the courts......in the afternoon we avoided another yacht who didn't know what he was doing, simple give way on his part....looked like a brand new boat.....just learning I suppose....he was trawling a fishing line which was unfortunately cut in half as I dipped his stern to miss him...unlucky....later that after attempting to find an anchorage near Mazarron which was too tight, we found one 5nm further on tucked into a little bay just offshore from a town named 'La Azohia'.....again we anchored in crystal clear water which was very refreshing but not in any way cold at all (about 26 degrees)....the town was small and quaint with some good music drifting over the water from a local bar, the sun setting we had a cold beer/wine in hand and had a good feed.....you can't ask for more than this.
