Visitors and a visit.

Our friends have come for a short visit,
Christine & Glyn
 We took our guests along to the fish market to see the famous Garrucha red prawns being auctioned although since a ruling by the EU in 2015 they must now be called Balearic Island prawns even though they are caught around the Mojacar sewer outlet.





Christine's cousin lives in Spain and after hearing about their worldwide adventures aboard their yacht, which they built themselves we were looking forward to meeting up with them in Roquetas de Mar.

What a fabulous day we had, a  90 minute drive got us to Alan & Margaret's flat overlooking their secure marina- fingerprint scanner to gain entrance here.

An excellent Menu of the Day was had at a local restaurant while this unassuming couple had us in stitches talking about some of the situations they found themselves in during the two year around the world voyage they undertook. They wrote a blog of their adventures here.

 After lunch we went aboard Ocean Lady, a fabulous craft built for a reason, to navigate around the globe in comfort.
