Average speed 4.7 knots Max 6.8 knots
|We expect the 'Carriage of the Nymphs' would have been a succsful|
chick magnet in its day. What a ride.
|The orchestra alcove is hidden behind the lattice screen on the right of the|
ball room which still features its magnificent original furniture
|Valencia turned it on as we celebrated 300 days since we'd moved onboard and made Alcheringa our home. We suitably toasted the occasion and got this great photo of the boat with the sun setting behind|
|A sure fire indicator that the sea state was still up was to be seen just on the |
other side of the breakwater. Surfing in the Med. Who'd have guessed.
|The previous day's gale had washed sand all over the paved promenade which|
is normaly 300 metres from the water's edge
|The river through Valencia used to flood so they diverted it and converted|
the old riverbed into one, continuous winding park many miles long still
with its old bridges crossing over.
|Valencia's impressive bullring and what else would you expect to find inside|
in April other than an Oktoberfest German Beer Hall. What the?????
Large, modern marina with good protection from the elements and secure, floating pontoons. Helpful, friendly staff. Excellent access to Valencia via metro with tram stop adjacent to the marina.
|Marina Real Juan Carlos 1 is extremely well presented, ideally located|
and proved a great place for our Valencia stop over
