As you can imagine, there were long queues for this event in Motril, with Motrileños and tourists alike turning out in their thousands.
The naval presence at Motril Port is one of the biggest gatherings of Spanish naval vessels in any Spanish port in quite a while – obviously, that does not include naval bases, such as Rota or Cartegena.
Yesterday was just the first day of this multi-day event, which will continue on the 2nd with the arrival of His Majesty, Rey Felipe VI, and then the big parade through the streets of Granada on the 3rd… obviously, no ships involved there, but plenty of marching service personnel, tanks & other vehicles, as well as a fly past.
Of course, on the 2nd, with the King in Motril, there will also be a military parade as well.
Back to the port, yesterday and 13 naval vessels were present with ship visits from ten in the morning to eight in the evening.
