Andalucia 2018

Nov 10th
House sale all gone to ratshit so what the hell time to get out of Denver and hit the Spain Drain.  Down to Hove, Ferry to Bilbao Wednesday 14th.  Great sailing, calm sea.

Very comfy cabin

Decent sleep

Leaving harbour

Bay of Biscay

Overnight Casita, Boceguillas

The Casita was a bit isolated, almost quit but fortunately some other people turned up to occupy next door.
Finally made it it to safe haven at the Ho Hotel in Jaen

The minibar gave up without a fight
