|Leaving the Bay of Toulon|
Early morning saw us making our way out of the Bay of Toulon, dipping our ensign as we gave way to a French destroyer and received a blast of acknowledgement in return.
It was very tempting to stop along the French coast at this time of year (September) with the weather still warm and the crowds thinning out, but we were on a mission so we had to be content with views of the lovely coastline.
Well it was a 27 hour journey to Palamos, our first port in Spain, and of course the winds were stronger than expected, but at least they were from the north and we got to SAIL most of the way.
The sheltered marina was a very welcome sight, and the Spanish voices over the VHF were a welcome sound - we were last in Spain in October, 2012.
