Midnight Swoop by the Guardia Civil

So, there we were, at midnight last night, minding our own business and enjoying a chat with a visiting neighbour, when the Guardia Civil (coastal and rural police) turned up in their battered old motor launch and served a writ on me for 'illegal anchoring', although we have been here since September and nobody has ever intimated to us that it was illegal to anchor here. In fact, there is an anchor on the chart!

Anyway, today is a public holiday so I will go and see the harbourmaster (whose bidding the Guardia said they were doing) tomorrow and find out what the hell this is all about...

If you are interested in the proceedings, you can follow them here: When Is An Anchorage Not An Anchorage as I will be keeping the forum posted now that I have darkened their door...
