Yet more friends we met in Almerimar, Marja & Frank have travelled far and wide since
2004, covering much of the Mediterranean including the Black Sea (they also called
in to Tunisia on the way back out of the Med). Unfortunately, Marja & Frank decided
to head back home to Holland in their yacht (still cruising in the North Sea but
no more long distances).
Friends On Route 2
Good friends from Tollesbury our East Coast of England home port. Tom & Louise set
off only at the beginning of 2006 from the UK. Having wintered on the Algarve they
then headed directly for Turkey, we agreed to meet along the way and ended up spending
some time in company in the Ionian Islands. A sad parting as they went East and
we headed out West but we will meet up again in the not too distant future.
Another couple from Almerimar, we met up again with Anna & Leo in Malta in 2007 they
were making their way East and we were returning West. We did a land tour of Malta
together and then ended up spending a week in company in the Blue Lagoon. As you
can see from the right hand picture, the lagoon is extremely clean clear water. Leo
and Alan actually played a little water polo then Leo & Anna did their Fred Astaire
and Ginger Rogers routine on the bow of Batavia to the sound of disco music from
a cruise ship in the Blue Lagoon.
