We left Cartagena on last day of May planning to coast hop north then over to Ibiza. Best laid plans as they say. For family reasons, we have returned to Cartagena where we will be near an airport and the boat well cared for if we need to shoot back to the UK. Whilst we are disappointed it is great having this "home" port to return to. We were out for a week and got as far as Calpe in the region of Valencia before heading back. Cartagena is a great city which we love very much and it won't be too much of a hardship to stay a bit longer. We were planning another winter here and have already paid our deposit. Hopefully we will get to go out again before the end of the season.
