Usual start this morning but once again we were on our own again as the french van had gone early. We later saw him queuing at the port. The guardian was now on parade so I did offer him the overnight fee which seemed to have gone up to 40 MAD but he did let me empty the cassette for nothing which is normally 10 MAD.
Making our way out of town at 10:15am we stopped to refill with fuel at the last filling station. We wanted to try and keep the tank full even though we had 90km to the port. We used the toll road which was 71 MAD and it took us about an hour.
Arrived at the port and was told that there was only one boat going out today at 3pm. Fortunately we did get the ticket and changed our last bit of money back to euros. Now came the formalities of the Police, Customs and finally the X-ray machine before we eventually came to the dock around 1pm where we waited for the ferry to come in.
We finally got loaded at around 3pm and set sail. It was very windy and choppy and difficult to walk to the cafe bar for some coffees but we did manage it. The time seemed to fly be and we soon docked at around 4:45pm.
Next stop was to fill with LPG as see how low we were. To my amazement the bottles only needed just over 14 litres of gas…. not even one empty bottle. If only I had known we could have had the heating on when we were up in the mountains. I will know for next time,…
We then took the short drive back to the car park adjacent to Carlos office and Carrefour. As it was Sunday all the stores and restaurants were closed so dinner was a McDonalds. Not our favourite but needs must. We did take advantage of the free WIFI and call some of the family.
Tomorrow it will be shopping for the essentials that need replenishing followed by a short drive along the coast. A fairly easy day for our first full day in Spain …..
