Friday was rainy and cloudy, but we all thought the worst was behind us. But in the night we got another surprise - the hale. It was luckily not big enough to make any damage to boat, hatches or even bimini, but again the noise it made kept us all awake.
Saturday was supposed to be sunny, but it wasn't. It was another grey day and we're slowly getting fed up with it. If it weren't for time spent with our friends and nice neighbours, there would be nothing to remember the day by. And we were hoping for a nice calm night, but there was some party in one of the bars nearby and they were making big noise till early in the morning.
On Sunday we thought the nice weather will finally arrive, but we had to wait until noon to see the sun and there was still very windy. Anyway we decide to see the fortress on the hill. We had a ticket for an elevator, but it was out of order, so we climbed up. It got hot and very humid, so we were quite glad there was still lots of wind. On the way we saw lots of mud and rocks that the rain washed from the hill.
I'm still impressed by the size of ficus trees here.
In the evening we went into town again to eat some of the local dish called caldero, it is similar to paella, but Cartagena style. Restaurants usually have it only on weekends. First we didn't know that most of the tapas bars open their kitchen again at 7.30 or 8 in the evening, almost like in Italy, so we strolled the town for and hour and a half, before we found the place that had working kitchen, and that caldero is eaten for lunch, so in the evening they didn't have it any more. Anyway, we had a nice food and beers in our favourite tapas bar in town La Uva Jumillana.
