We wave goodbye to all our new sailing friends who we have got to know while waiting in Balaruc for our outboard motor to be fixed. Sharing drinks and going shopping together and sitting at the bar, and we nearly went dancing at the little bar that has party music all weekend, all afternoon and all evening. Very lively little town. Even though we have enjoyed the Etang we are eager to get moving again.
As we arrived towards Sete we could see the bridges going up. Full spend ahead lets get out. Our engine did 5.6 knots, but still we watch them go down again as we were so close. Artie was disappointed !
An hour later tied up against the wall near the bridges we watch the golden rays of the setting sun as we baked a cake,
Also great to find a water supple from a public fountain, so

The last few days in Balaruc, summer arrives at last
