I had been here before, on my gap year, when it was possible to anchor. Now there is a big new marina in the same spot, and anchoring is discouraged. At Limbo's size, charges were around 19 Euros a night, less than we paid to raft up in Weymouth. We found our berth and set foot on land for the first time in five days.

We didn't mean to stay more than a couple of days - but the wind was blowing fairly strongly and it was very easy to put off our departure: particularly when we discovered that you got a free extra night once you'd stayed for four... The days were hot enough to need shade, and we successfully tried out the new awning I'd had made in England. We met up again with new friends Rod and Julie on their boat Rojo, last seen in Camaret. We ate tapas at a cafe in the park, walked to the Torre del Hercules to have a look at the waves crashing on the rocks, watched the sun set from the breakwater, and became generally quite harbour-bound. It was time to get back into cruising mode.
