Carrying kilos and kilos of sand we are leaving for sailing towards MINDELO IN THE ISLAND OF SAN VICENTE. If we like some island on the way we will stop, if not- directly to Mindelo. Little by little.
Our friends Adrian and Christof from sailboat boat VOYAGE left towards Tobago today ...and soon we will start our trip across Atlantic too.
After so many days spend on anchor here we walked in the vilage as if we were living here. ..lost between sand and wind, but happy.
Some days we were staying in Palmeira, others riding by local bus to the south, Santa Maria or Espargos, capital of the island. Distances here are so short that you can go to other town just for an ice cream . We tried local food , local drinks and local fish as well. Eating outside is so cheap here that its cheaper to eat in the restaurant than to buy food and cook it on boat. Our favourite place is restaurant LAS SALINAS in Espargos. For just 2,5e you get full plate of fresh fish with rice and fried potatoes or chicken. More than enough. Not for everyday, but sometimes we can permit it:)
But it came time to leave. .
We leave you with more photos....and we go to lift the anchor.
