Castillo de San Gabriel

Originally built in 1574, the Castillo de San Gabriel defended Arrecife Harbour for only a few years before being destroyed by the Algerian Pirate Morato Arraez in 1586.

The castle was rebuilt in 1599 and was used for military purposes through the 1950s. Currently, it houses the Archaeological Museum.

Arriving in the Canaries

Pulled into Lanzarote, Canary Islands. Within an hour, saw a friend from Portimão on the dock. Lots of wind and waves on the passage, but it was all worth it. On a cloudy, moonless night, I was treated to the strangest laser light show. Something out of Tron or Pandora. Dolphins playing in the bioluminescence. Swirls of light below the water. Large balls of light where they individually turn around and accelerate. Then, multiple bands of blue light coming together as they grouped up to make bow run after bow run. One pod stayed with me for four hours. Unbelievably beautiful.

Agadir, Morocco

Falkor is ready to head back to sea. I will always remember the wonderful friends I made in Agadir. What amazing hospitality. I hope to see you all again. Thank you, Morocco!

The Plants and Animals of the Crocodile Park.

Outside of Agadir

Hippy town, secluded oasis, roaming goats and new friends. Thanks for showing us the hidden gems of Agadir, Habib Kasba. Best tour guide in Morocco.

Portimao to Agadir

Falkor is strong and safe as is her crew.

Made it to Agadir, Morocco.

Dolphins every day, turtles, bioluminescence and endless stars.

Watched the water turn from a deep navy to a translucent turquoise. 500 miles down.
