July still in Cartagena work in progress

Its now the 26th of July and the end is in sight, maybe!
July has been a busy month for not just working on the boat but a little leisure time inside and outside the marina. 
We have had a few "get togethers" food and wine and general social gatherings. 

Outside the marina we had the Spanish navy ship Juan Carlos, an aircraft carrier which I managed to visit with Wally and Lori. it came in late one evening and was lit up like a christmas tree. I bought Don his own wings and so now he can fly his own Harrier jet now (they are pins for his shirt). 
The Juan Carlos aircraft Carrier complete with Harriers. (L61) is a multi-purpose warship in the Spanish Navy (Armada EspaƱola). Similar in concept to the American Wasp class LHDs, it has the addition of a ski jump for STOVL operations. The ship will be equipped with fighter jets of the AV-8B Harrier II type and will primarily be used as an aircraft carrier. The vessel is named in honour of Juan Carlos I, the current King of Spain.

 The Spanish navy are not opposed to a little piracy themselves naughty navy! 

Great ski jump

These are the aircraft details
Ok Next post on its way soon
