Marbella (Bajadilla) was also a very nice stop. The seafront was attractive and didn't have the 'run out of money' look that quite a few of the other marinas we have stayed in have had. The beach was right next door to us so we had a swim there too. The water is just warm enough to be refreshing and a pleasure to be in.
Fuengirola....we had hoped to meet up with my friend Ann here but her circumstances did not allow that
A short motor along from Fuengirola to Benalmadena that morning and we were in the marina by lunchtime. A thick fog came down as we arrived but it blew away within a short time. This morning I got up early (8.30am!) and went to the beach for a swim
Nothing exciting happened but we did see several flying fish and a small shark.
At lunchtime Steve decided he had to try and catch some of the fish that swim in the marinas. The grey mullet are not good to eat but there are some others that look like Bream that are good. He tied a hook to some line and then tied that to the end of one of his rods and then put the line over the side with bread attached and threw in some old biscuits that we didn't like as bait. He caught one straight away as it was like a feeding frenzy. Not too much later another 2 were onboard so our supper was secured! Well done Steve. A Spaniard came over to watch and it was him who gave us the information about the fish.
Mark left the boat today after spending nearly 2 weeks with us along this part of the Spanish coast. We hope you enjoyed the time with us Mark and we will see you on board again.
