Albufiera - Portugal

We are here, next move to Gibraltar, Jamie up to his usual antics, bar fight then into the drink with nice looking cuts and bruises to go with it. Nic is off to Oz for her sisters wedding and Steven is hunting for a new 8-10hp 2 stroke for the tender, the old one is just playing up far too much!

Update... Well I had a miracle worker make the old 8hp 2 stroke work almost like new... celtic marine in albufiera, he charged more than quoted ,but I cannot grumble as it now works great, but I still want one of the tohatsu 9.8hp 2 strokes its only 26kg, the suzuki is 34kg , hard work on the arms and back!

We had a great time in Albufiera, A big shout to Karsten and Limmy (2 German dudes) if they ever read this (great people) and to Rhino (ok not his real name) but a German psychologist, we had a mad conversation, (under the influence of course) and lastly to Eric and Lin at Sharkies bar , if you ever visit this place give their bar a visit. we intended to stay a couple of days and I dragged Jamie to leave after 9 days, well more so I managed to get him to sober up as he had ran out of money!!!

Oh I almost forgot Richie and the Hungarian Parliament guy (sorry I cannot remember your name- too much booze), Ritchie had just single handed across the Atlantic, so in true Scottish style we took him to the pub and got him well smashed  ;)

We confused a few people by hanging an Irn bru towel as a national flag.

As per usual, Steven had no fuel and upon leaving Albufiera the fuel berth had no fuel, they said a three day wait, so off we went anyways, it is a sail boat after all.

It has been a great adventure so far, with much more to come, I miss everyone at home, but its the price we pay to live this life!

It was actually much worse than this looks!
Simple mechanics
