We all went to play tennis at the courts down the road. My favourite part was Daddy and I on one side, and Maddy and Mummy on the other. We had a long volley. Camille got the balls and gave us them, it was fun.
Today be played Boule. Grandma, Camille, Maddy and I went to the BBQ area to a big sandpit. It is a game where you have to throw heavy ball’s to hit a little ball. We had two teams, Camille and Grandma were on the same team. Maddy and my team won.
On Sunday 12th of June we went to Porto Petro, Mallorca, Spain.
Despite the fact that the water wasn’t the nicest we have swam in, we went swimming. Asia, Camille and I had a lot of fun jumping in.
Then we went to the supermarket. At the supermarket we brought some postcards. I wanted to get a keyring with a lizard on it that said Mallorca on it, but unfortunately I had forgotten my money.
Later we went out to dinner at a place called Rafael y Flora (which means Rafael and Flora). There we had pizza, tapas, calamari, Mum and Dad shared a paella.
When we were done they gave us an ice cream each. Even though Asia is dairy free we persuaded her to eat it and she said it was yuck!
Then we walked back to the dinghy and went back to Hector for some sleep.
So we finally made it out of Cartagena by lunchtime. We anchored in a bay, all went well until the wind changed direction and the swell increased. The boat was pointing into the wind and the swell was hitting us on the side. It ended up being a pretty horrendous night with very little sleep. Not a good start, but at least it meant we got an early start the next day!
Heading out of Cartagena, we've really loved this town but ready for the next one.
Maddy and Anastasia rowed ashore on their own - no line this time!
The calm before the swell!
This is our favourite thing to do while we are stuck in the marina waiting on jobs to be done.

Today we went to the museum it was cool. We saw heaps of prehistoric pottery and money.
There were cool things that if you pressed a button a diver went down and got some pottery
(of course it wasn't real) it was showing how the divers got the treasure from the bottom of the ocean it was a really cool experience. So if you ever go to Spain go to ARQVA Museo Nacional de Arqueologia Subacuatica which translates to ARQVA National Museum of Underwater Archaeology.

We went for our first sail just around the corner to a beach. It was a bit to cold to go swimming, but Camille did it.
We went out to dinner with Willam and Thea the old owners of the boat. I got pizza, it has ham and tomato sauce on it. It was yummy.
There was a concert on the way home.
We're an ordinary family of 5 dreaming, planning and now beginning our adventure around the Mediterranean (and further afield), having an awesome time! Look out for our boat and come and say hi.
