Readying Mistral (and ourselves) …

So far, so good … no disasters! We arrived safely on Thursday evening, back in the pretty port of Aguadulce.

I was thrilled that the man we had trusted with our boat keys (our life right now!) repaid our trust in kind – doing the jobs we had given him and best of all cleaning the outside of the boat a couple of times. It looked perfect! Oh so happy not to have to start a big clean in 37 degrees! It’s super hot here in Aguadulce – siesta needed between 1pm and 5pm.

It’s a testament to our greater knowledge that the discovery of a flat generator battery caused very little concern. Off to the marina, order a new one and best of all – change the battery ourselves! Definitely congratulated ourselves on that one.

We’ve spent the last 3 days preparing the boat and ourselves for sailing. Massive food shop with as much time being taken to stow it all … vacuum packing meat for the freezer, taking labels off cans and marking them up (we don’t want any bugs getting behind the paper) and searching out every possible nook for storage! Checking all the seacocks, cleaning inside and preparing for our trusty crew who are joining us for the sail back up to Palma … lovely friend James and godson Oliver. Can’t wait!
