Whilst we've been in the big city we did the Big Shop - a fun afternoon around Carrefour and El Cortes Ingles. The obliging taxi driver dropped us right at the top of the walkway down to the boat and so this morning's task was to remove excess packaging (remembering to mark items with indelible pen!) and load them into our 8 large plastic crates, whilst updating our stores list at the same time. We've tried our best to group products together so that we don't have to open every box each time we want to cook:
The sorting process under way
Items loaded into numbered boxes
Miraculously they all fit under the starboard pilothouse seat
- and don't make the boat list too much to starboard!
The rest of the fresh food we'll buy in Las Palmas at the very last minute. We'll set off from here early in the morning - it's a 55 mile passage and we'd like to be there before dusk as finding our allocated space will be tricky and there could well be a queue of boats waiting to check in.
