East Coast of Spain (from Almeria to  Cape Creus ( 9 July till 3 August 2015))  The east coast of Spain is mainly covered by Balnearic cities, so Terus only stopped in Carthagena, Valencia and Barcelona. However we did stop for one night in numerous marinas:  1.   Marina Juan Montiel (10 July), a little marina located in a commercial harbor. 2.   Cartagena (11-13 July) were a thief stole Genevieve's cell phone while we were sleeping on       the boat! 3.   Villa Joyosa (15 July), a nice little marina. 4.   Denia (16 July), a harbor with a lot of traffic and a lot of noise.. 5.   Marina Juan Carlos à Valencia (17-25 July), a very nice marina were the America's Cup was      organized. 6.   Burriana (26 of July), a harbor with very noisy fishermen that will do everything to disrupt       your sleep. 7.   Rota de Bara (28 July), a harbor that is relatively new but very empty. 8.   Port Vell de Barcelona (29-31 July ), a very nice marina well located for a visit to the city.  When the weather forecast was good, we also anchored along the coast in such places as:   1. Agua Armarga (9 July), where you are well protected from the northerly winds.   2. Mar Menor (14 July), an inland sea were you are very well protected. You need to wait for       the bridge to open to enter the sea. The Maximium depth allowed is 3 meters. The bridge       opens every 2 hours between 8AM and 22PM.   3. San Carles de Rapita (27 juillet), a very well protected place with a depth of 4 to 6 meters.   4. Blanes (1 August), a little bay located next to the village. However, during the summer months,      a lot of noise comes from the nearby city.   5. As the weather was good we passed Cape Creus on the 2 of August. This place can be very     tricky when the wind blows from the wrong direction. Just after Cape Creus we decided to     anchor at Calla de Tavallera  a beautiful place surrounded by cliffs that have different colours     during the day. If you arrive in day time, the cigadas welcome you.     This was a very nice place to stay for our last  Spanish night. The day after we replaced the     Spanish courtesy flag with the French Flag.  Unfortunately, we were not successful catching fish. Of course, every shop has an explanation, but from all their opinions we understood that the major reason seemed to be that we were too close to the shore or that our speed was too slow. Our speed needed to be above 7 knots and the depth above 200 meters. Dolphins were also invisible; the only appearance was a whale that came to the surface on two occasions, but too far away for the camera.
