We wintered in Almerimar marina on the Costa del Sol. Although Almerimar is probably more famous for it's miles of greenhouses and Golf Resort, we explored further afield and went walking in the Sierra Nevada mountains and the Alcazaba of Almeria. We also enjoyed the beach, the kite surfers and tried out the local skate park.

We quickly discovered that USB devises on a boat are a necessity - not a luxury and our screen time actually increased when we moved aboard. The two USB plugs we had on the boat were woefully inadequate to cope with charging our phones, tablets, kindles, GoPro and other devises that accompany a modern, mobile lifestyle which would end up in a pile on the nav table. So the only solution was to install a whole lot more outlets for our USB devises. Instead of running more wires through already congested conduits, we replaced the 70's style 24v bedside lights with car 24v USB plugs and here's how we did it!

Our #Eumenia / #Eudora washing machine finally gave up. We tried repairing it but after 20 years it was probably long overdue for a replacement! So we ordered a mini Candy Automatic but of course, it didn't quite fit so a few modifications to the boat were needed. It wasn't all plain sailing, so see how we got on!

We don't like seeing plastic thrown away on the beach, in the ocean or anywhere for that matter because we know how harmful it can be to wildlife. So along with a community of cruisers, we all decided to clean one part of the beach in Almerimar, Spain where the wind had recently blown a lot of plastic into one corner of the beach. We concentrated on this nine acre section. Eventually, after 40 bags of rubbish, collected by 29 people, 5 children and 6 dogs, we left the beach clean.

To visit the Alhambra Palace in Spain, you need to be very organised and buy your tickets in advance and make sure you arrive early to see the Nazri Palace and gardens. It is worth the effort and like a scene from Game of Thrones. On our first attempt to enter the Alhambra Palace, the tickets are sold out and it was raining so the second attempt we bought our tickets in advance and treated ourselves to a Hotel! We try a traditional Andalucian breakfast of tostada and then head off to the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. When we arrive we did not realise it takes 15 minutes to get to the entrance to the Nazri Palace and you have a time allocated on your ticket which you have to stick to. So we run! Inside the Nazri Palace, there are many rooms , each with a different purpose for the 24 sultans that were living there with their wives and families. Not all sultans died a natural death however. After the Moors left peacefully and Ferdinand and Isabella moved in, it was here that the voyage of Christopher Columbus was endorsed which led to him landing in the Americas. The "Generalife" is separated from the main palace, it was a summer palace where a wide variety of vegetables and fruit were grown and it was a place to relax in the beautiful gardens. Water was a symbol of power as it was scarce but the whole palace had plenty, supplied by a natural river source that even had enough pressure to keep the fountains going. We wandered past the Medina which was another whole city within the palace walls where arts and crafts were made as gifts to the court and other visitors. The Alcazaba was the tower that contained the military lodgings and around the edge of the wall was yet another garden of Italian style. It is unbelievable how many gardens there are in the citadel. From the top of the tower, you get a spectacular view of the city of Grenada. This is where the bell tower is situated and great place to spot any enemies but the bell was also a way to notify the city of when to initiate the next shift for irrigating the crops. The Alhambra Palace is well worth a visit, it reminded of a scene of Game of Thrones and we could see why they chose locations in Spain to film this series such as The Bridge at Cordoba as shown in our last episode.

We continue our road tour of Andalucia and visit the spectacular Mosque- Cathedral of Cordoba for some history, religion and cultural studies and then the zoo to learn about the different habits of animals and how they are protected. We arrive in Cordoba, a beautiful city that reminds me of Prague where my Grandma is from. Then we head into the courtyard of the Mosque - Cathedral or Metzquita Catedral as is known in Spanish. The history stretches back for thousands of years, all in one place. There was once a Roman temple here and then the basilica church was built by the Visigoths in 572. After this a Mosque was built by Abd al- Rahman and the space was halved for the two religions. During the reconquista, the mosque was then extended into a Renaissance Cathedral in 1523. After the cultural visit, we took the children to the zoo which they were very excited about. Yewan saw his first elephant in his life and we thought the Babary apes were very similar to the behaviour in our family. The many columns are built from precious stones and the horseshoe arch is built on a wall that faces Mecca.

We return to our life on the boat in Spain and do our bit for the VHF cruisers net before we even managed to unpack. After struggling to be healthy through "dry January", we go on a road trip around Andalucia in Spain. The VHF net is a great way to connect with your local boat community and a good way to help fellow cruisers out as well as benefitting yourself. Our first stop on our road trip was El Torcal in Antequera, an area of strange shaped limestone rocks that were previously covered by water and then rose up due to disruption o the seabed and then the wind and rain eroded them away to form these shapes. We did a fourty five minute walk around the rocks. We stayed the night in an interesting mountain hotel full of stuffed animal heads. The next day we drove to Ronda where we admired the Puente Nuevo 'New bridge' and then visited the largest Bullring in the world ( measured by the 'rueda' - ring and not the amount of people that can be seated ) The children absorbed the information and found ways to understand and relive the experience .

After the Christmas celebrations in Spain, we head back to make a tour of England to visit family , friends and collect our Czech passports before Brexit. We head to the old market place in Kingston Upon Thames where seven Saxon Kings were crowned and to Kew Gardens for the Christmas light show " Lit Up Kew" where I use to go as a child. We visited our home village of Rottingdean an old Saxon farming community and went ice skating outside the Brighton Pavilion and we were reminded of how much we miss our special friends and family back home. As we headed further North we got very active and took the kids to Adrenaline Alley , the biggest skate park in UK and then Bounce, a trampoline park. To celebrate New Year 2019, we went for a walk in the woods with the kids new walkie talkies where they got lost again. We headed further North and went to Seaham Harbour with family where we collected sea glass on the beach. Finally, we started to head South again to Manchester, the heart of the industrial revolution and a big music scene. We were impressed by the barges yet again and Woody praised superb architecture of the industrial revolution We warmed up with a visit to the science museum where we saw the original "Stevensons Rocket" and then walked through the modern city to the John Rylands library where the children were able to examine the exquisite interior using binoculars, magnifying glasses and a quizz. Even further South, we went for a glorious walk in the Cotswolds , an area of outstanding natural beauty before heading back to the Czech Embassy to collect our Passports before Brexit. On the way back to Malaga in Spain we filled our bags with presents and safety equipment.

Our #Mastervolt Chargemaster 24/100 battery charger is one of the most important pieces of electrical equipment on our sailboat.. and normally one of the most reliable. So when it goes wrong, it's a big problem. We couldn't charge batteries from either shore power or our #Cumminsonan​ generator but luckily we could still charge from our #volvopenta​ engine alternator and prop-shaft generator. So while we waited the six weeks for it to be repaired, we had to move constantly to re-charge the batteries and had to live as energy efficiently as possible! Special thanks to #FischerPanda UK Ltd​ and #Aquafax​ for their help and advice and #UPS​ couriers for for being so reliable with the delivery.

Without other boat kids around and a repair list as long as our boat, we decided to try out the local Spanish schools for the winter so that the kids learn a bit of Spanish, meet some other kids their own age and we can crack on with our jobs aboard. We also celebrated The Day of The Dead " Dia del Muertos" and got down to some serious bike maintenance and testing. Now that all the other boat cruising families have set sail, we decided to try out the local schools in Spain so that the kids are with children their own age. It was very strange on Rowans first day, she had never been to secondary school and not speaking Spanish didn't help. The boys started a few days later with a long list of stationary we had to translate and purchase. And so the daily commute to school started at 7.30 in the morning on the school bus for Rowan and a 2 mile cycle along the beach for the boys. We all had a new challenge to master the Spanish language! Then after, some good friends from England came to visit and we prepared for Halloween and to celebrate Dia del Muertos or All Saints Day as is more important in Spain. After another sad goodbye, Woody got on with making an outboard stand to service the outboards and Irenka did another epic bike repair, maintenance and testing day, getting the kids involved as much as possible.

In our wintering marina, we were overjoyed to be surrounded by several families cruising with kids. We did lots of fun things together going for beach walks, laser tag, the children got very creative doing cooking, arts and crafts and the adults experimented with new cultural habits such as eating deep fried #mars bars. The weather turned to rainstorms and all the families headed West to cross the Atlantic towards the Caribbean. We were all very sad to say goodbye . We took some walks along the beach and the children couldn't resist a swim. The girls then set up a whole fashion show on the pontoon while the boys provided the backdrop...kind of. Then the children decided to cook a feast of a meal for all their parents, by shopping cooking and even setting up a pop up restaurant on the pontoon entertained by live music. We took the children to #megazone or #laserzone as it is sometimes known and for more #beachwalks. The adults also had some fun and our Scottish friend introduced the deep fried mars bar challenge, which we decided would be a good criteria for completing the Atlantic #ARC race for #cruisers. As the fair weather turned to rain and storms, the cruising families set sail and headed West towards the Caribbean. We were all sad to say goodbye and the children seem to struggle even more with the farewells. We reflected on the reason why we could not go with them this year and thought about the places still to explore in the Med for one more season.
