We were meant to stay just
a few hours in Las Palmas on 12th Apr. before going on to Morocco (Agadir and
Casablanca) then sailing up the river to Seville before returning to Lisbon.
However a storm was bearing down on us. The Captain decided to stay put - for
Sunday and Monday. By then he would only have time to return to Lisbon - thus
missing out all the places we wanted to see!. Not only that but we would have to
sail through the storm. A lifeboat drill "for real" was called and
everything was lashed down...
We jumped ship and flew home from Las Palmas.
At least we had an extra few days in The Lakes!
