Our deck lighting is defective. Also should another additional spinnaker halyard are pulled into the mast. So one must be in the mast and that's the first one on this ship. Make plain linen, unpack boatswain's chair and let's go to the top. The spinnaker halyard I moved quickly, the deck lighting needs a spare part that we have to get. From the top you have a beautiful panoramic view of the harbor. ( http://www.almerimar-resort.com/en/puerto-deportivo )

After Cale de San Pedro we go under sail, Genoa with only aft winds. At 30.12 in the afternoon by 15 clock we drop by 7 m depth the anchor, Cale de San Pedro. We have light swell in the bay and fall winds. The place is not as quiet as we have presented to us. On the beach for us is strikingly unexpected happenings. High up in the cliff face we see walkers on a narrow path. We note that there appears to only provide them with a path to the bay. No motorable roads or paths. Only later when sundowner we see more and more small huts and houses in the rocks. Apparently hollow rocks are inhabited. A door can be seen just before and laundry hanging out to dry and then also with the slope. Many of the small accommodations have solar panels and a satellite dish on the roof. Even the small dilapidated castle appears to be inhabited.

Garrucha bunkering we want, diesel and water. We arrive in the early afternoon there and tie up at the gas station of the Yacht Club. At the outer jetty is a freighter that is being loaded, probably with sand. The gas station is still closed, it is too early lunch or siesta. Once the move is complete bunkers we we. In the new marina, which is empty and do there permanently for the night The Marina is a boat, everything else is empty. On the outer jetty on running belt-drive trucks bring the sand to lie on the freighter. Good we have westwind, so goes the dust cloud out to sea.

Aguilas is otherwise like any other place we've seen. Lying at anchor in the harbor was always operating on land, also in the evening were abundant cars and people around. The next day we have seen the bike. And even now the most impressive was that this is a place with lots of activity. It has a railroad - where ship loading facility, which is now out of service. There is also a conference center, which is structurally quite striking, it is right on the harbor in the east. If we manage it, we will stop here again.

In Puerto de Mazarron, the Mole was in the cards still drawn to anchor free, but in reality everything is full with bars. We anchor off the town and want to stay here over Christmas.

We arrive in the early afternoon in the Mar Menor. Let the anchor fall outside even before the sheet metal walls. The holding ground is good but swell to remember is. We lift anchor and head slowly in the area framed with metal plates, here is the threshold over. We are doing well, the only prospect on rusted metal plates obscures the somewhat. The next day we pack the bikes in our dinghy and go to the bascule bridge that separates the Mar Menor from the Mediterranean. Here we will dock the dinghy and goes by bicycle through a ghost town. There are thousands of apartments, all EMPTY - leave the apartments are - this is a ghost town.
