Yes, we are out of order for blog postings on our adventure, but decided to try and show you where we are NOW! This is Marina Smir about 25 miles south of Gibraltar. Very slow pace as summer season is over, so lots of places closed, especially close to marina. Markets are about 4-6 miles away.
Our first sunrise in Morocco, as seen from the cockpit link.
One of the tour guides told us this was a “Moroccan Taxi”!! Maybe so, but she did not like to be petted!! click
Tall ship on the left is from Sweden, traveling the Med with a group of teenagers doing classes and studies on board. The wooden trawler in front looks to be a restaurant, but not functioning at present. The marina office is in background http://educlimate.eu/map.
Moroccan flags welcome us to the beach to the southern side of the marina, so took a walk, of course! http://efesto.eu/map
