    Maybe there is a better place to be at this time of the year, but I've yet to find it!
    Thanks for that P, just as I'm driving back to the UK! I reckon we've got another 10 -12 years to wait until we can go away without the kids and take advantage of the best part of the season!

    No first hand experience about how much less crowded the Spanish coast becomes in Sep, but I would think that in two weeks you should definitely enjoy the place at its best, and (normally) also some great weather!

    The Spanish mainland coast will empty out this weekend. All the Spaniards go back to work, so September is a lovely time here too. All the restaurants and bars are still open. Weather is getting better, the sea will stay warm for another month or so but the land will cool down. Usually that means flat seas as the afternoon sea breeze gets a lot weaker. Assuming no storms, the water clarity improves too. However sadly not as clear or as blue as Sardinia.

    still haven't seen a jelly fish this year, although I did get stung by a wasp yesterday.

    I thought I recognised that anchorage.







    This year has been a lot different to usual.
    Not been anywhere other than a few local places.
    Hopefully all changing now and, as you say, the season is just starting.
    The late season cruises are always the best.

    Might head for Ibiza for a few days and back - then two or three weeks again at in the islands at the end of this September/beginning of October.

    At last.
    Not had much boating so far this year.
    Off to Mallorca tomorrow for a few days.
    Then, hopefully, again later this month.

    And this is a clip from our passage across to Mallorca today.
    Flat as a flat thing in flatland.
    Sorry the clip coincided with a "Logging Event".
    Some people on here will know the Jennywren "logging Event".

    Does anyone else notice that as the year drags on, we start to get outnumbered by sailing yachts?

    Probably because it tends to get windier in the SoF as autumn approaches or more likely its because all yotties are hairshirt skinflints and they think marinas, restaurants and bars are going to be a bit cheaper
