2017-08-19 Cala Hortz to Cala Tarida, Ibiza Island Early morning in Cala Tarida Cloudy Bay, Peter and Barbara’s 10 m Fountaine Pajot catamaran is moored beside the Tangaroa In convoy with Peter and Barbara, we depart Cala Horts to go ashore for coffee in one of the next bays heading north Passing the old wooden boat sheds on the western shore as we depart the lovely anchorage of Cala Horts Hopefully next time in the bay we will try one of the local delightfully positioned restaurants Leaving the bay we pass the spectacular Moorish style houses perched on the western cliff face We have some good company motoring north This motor boat passes us at great pace!! Our NZ friends on Cloudy Bay travelling at a more comfortable pace We drop anchor outside Cala Badella which is a small anchorage north of Cala Horts and Cala Carbo Peter and Barbara had visited this small town of Cala Badella on a previous occasion and suggested we go ashore for coffee before continuing up the coast Cala Badella has a lovely sheltered beach and is very popular with families in the summer holidays We all head for one of the waterside restaurants for coffee Such a lovely relaxed spot at “L’an Jaume” and a very pleasant place to come ashore for lunch or a coffee and a snack as we have done!! This is one third of the portion of the ham, cheese and relish toastie we ordered to share, just delicious !! Looking out to the bay through lounge chairs and umbrellas!! The wooden boat sheds in Cala Bandella seem to be similar to all the ones we have seen in other bays on the island We head back to the Tangaroa to continue our journey up the coast Nearby in the bay is a group of young people enjoying the the new addiction of paddle boarding…..and taking selfies at the same time!!! We continue up the coast past Cala Moli and arrive at Cala Tarida Cala Tarida is one of the many very popular anchorages on the western Ibiza coast It was a surprise to see the yacht Sea Dreams on anchor in Cala Tarida. She was previously owned by Tasmanian friends of ours from our home town of Hobart Also now moored beside us is Cloudy Bay We join Peter and Barbara on Cloudy Bay with some of their new NZ sailing acquaintances for drinks and nibbles this evening Ric & Jeremy Peter proudly changes into his new T-shirt which he acquired after recently retiring !! Tangaroa, towels and all!! Nice coloured dress on the young lady posing aboard a boat nearby!! Another beautiful sunset Goodnight to all!!
