Well we had another great little sail today, I was planning to fly the spinnaker easy surf west with the predicted north easterly force 3 or 4 so left the ...
... de Europa national park, where a little train called a funicular ran up and down inside a mountain. We went up in the funicular, then walked for a few hundred metres until we got to a village.

The town itself was fairly modern, with a few hidden gems.
A most pleasant stay.
