A good night was had by all tasting the local tapas served in many small restaurants through the quaint narrow streets of Cadiz. Today, Sunday, we have a full day to explore the town at our leisure.
Before we leave the ship Frances from, Aft Starboard, is hauled in a wheel chair up the fore mast to view the surrounding architecture of Cadiz to plan her route.
One keen group of voyage crew decide to take a morning walk with a dip in the sea before a tasty meal in the beach café. Cadiz has several walks all with an interest. There is one route that will allow you to discover the city’s golden age when it became the gateway to a flourishing trade with the Indies. All crew were expected to be back on board by 5pm/6pm to have their evening meal before departing Cadiz. The port stop has been a great success and it is not long before we make way to a new destination, Gibraltar. Unfortunately we may not be unable to get a berth so once we have taken on fuel we probably will go to an anchorage.
The pilot has left the ship as the night covers us in a cloak of darkness.
A watch remains on the bridge while the others take to their bunks.
