Synopsis
The water was warm and calm, with that special shade between blue and green, largely depending from where you were looking at it. Binns and Janet Galley were on the way back from a pleasant lazy afternoon along the coast at the Chevas de Arta watching the local boatmen from Gala Bona cooking fish over open fires among the rocks, which they served with local wine to the holidaymakers who had booked for the half-day trips. The thirty-six foot " Dinero ", freshly painted brilliant white, with two broad bands of pale blue below the deck line, was cutting quickly and powerfully through the water on the journey back to the mooring in the small harbour at Cala Bona. Sitting in the high seat at the wheel Binns could see Janet lying naked on the deck beside the bow rails. She was deeply tanned and her body glistened with Ambre Solaire. When he called to her she rolled over and sat up, holding her hands to her eyes to shade them from the glare of the sun. He said: '' Time to cover it up, we'll be berthing in a few minutes." They were already passing Port Verde on the run in towards the long jetty which came out at right angles and almost squared off the small harbour with its tight entrance. Boats of all shapes and sizes were tied up at the berths.
