We had a quick sail in 18-22 knots of west wind, but with strong winds in the forecast and failing light, we decided against rounding Cabo de Gata today.  We tied up at the end of the dock for a night, but other than registering with the marina, we did not go ashore. A simple dinner onboard (marinated steaks and reheated pasta & veggies) and early to bed after sampling the new version of David’s “house special” — Oloroso wine from Adra mixed with Dolce (sweet dessert wine) from Valencia. Now we know where the great taste of the sherry wine “Oloroso dolce” comes from!
