Hi,
Who know what the freight ships are doing on anchor? Hopefully not cleaning their tanks!

There are ships waiting off the Vera Playa coast for a berth in Garrucha port almost all year round. Sometimes as many as four ships are waiting offshore.  They are loaded in port with gypsum brought by lorry from the gypsum mines near Sorbas.
