Guadalquivir - on sea

In the early morning the FRAM left her position in the midt of Sevilla and went down the river again. First we went through the suburbs and outskirts of town, before we reached the plain agricultural landscape with fields of corn and orchards of oranges. It's a distance of approximatly 100 km to the open sea. There are no villages or citys at this part of the river, just a very empty landscape with a lot of storks. The last miles we went through europes biggest nature reserve, the "Coto de Donana". The rest of the day we were far out on the sea again enjoying fresh baked waffles or listening to some lectures ...

A little bit smaller ships than ours!
