Cala de s’Isla and Es Grau was our next overnight stop. We anchored at first and waited for the 6.30pm cut-off time for moorings to be picked up that is still available (The mooring inspector was very adamant that all moorings were booked and we had to wait to see if the boats will show up or not – luckily we found one!). It was pretty windy and the mooring provided a welcome security against trouble. We need to update our internet time but with the website only in Spanish, it did not help us much and thought to go into town to get some Wi-Fi to check the weather and emails.

Es Grau is a small fishing village with a time hot and humid little Supermercado where Lientjie and I quickly went to stock up on cokes, beer and fresh veggies and fruit. As we got back to the boat, having a sundowner G&T, Johann spotted a yacht that was stuck/ stranded on a shallow sandbank and again went to the rescue. It took a good half an hour to free the French boat and long and behold we were rewarded 2 hours later with a bottle of red wine! Well – that seems to be the way to stock up on wine 🙂 …this is the second time we helped a stranded French boat and got a bottle of wine for it!
