    Different Paths

    March 14, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Today the group went in different directions.
    Tory, Roger and Charles drove to Gibraltar and the Delaney’s walked the boardwalk for a few kilometres. We regrouped in the evening to share stories then went to dinner.

    Their trip to The Rock was a big success. They left their car at the border and hired a cab to take them to the top, the caves, the monkey spa and the tunnels. They enjoyed it just as much as Brian had the week before.

    Our walk was quite pleasant but not half as exciting. The boardwalk extends as far as the eye can see in both directions.

    Dinner at Bogarts was a lovely experience. Within walking distance, the only problem we experienced was trying to find the front door! Fortunately our gracious waitress saw us out the window and came to our aid. Waiting for the paella to cook, we shared tapas and wine.....yummy. Coincidentally, the guitar player we met on our previous outing appeared to serenade us again.

    Slow Day

    March 15, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Everyone had a late breakfast (too much wine last night) then Charles left for Portugal today. In the afternoon, Brian volunteered to drive Tory and Christine to a large department store, El Corte Ingles that they had been lusting to visit. Our finicky GPS surprised us and we arrived in good time. Brian suggested we meet in 1.5 hours and Christine reluctantly agreed. The timing worked out but the store was a bit of a disappointment; too pricey. Tory did buy some clothes for the grandkids in a discount section.
    Dinner was leftovers and anything left in the fridge, as we leave tomorrow.
    The pictures were taken from our balcony.

    Los Jarales.

    January 11 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Ok, so we have been here for 9 days now and will be leaving tomorrow on Jaynes birthday. Had a great time here last year, however this year, although it's been good, we haven't done as much as we did previously. Spent a lot of time catching up on much needed rest, reading and popping to the local bars and resturants.
    Saturday did see us walk from Calahonda to Mijas Costa along the boardwalk to the market at La Cala. A round trip of about 6 miles.
    The site here seems to have deteriorated since last year, well it was only February, but there seem to be more long termers here now with their ramshackle set ups. Some pitches don't even have vans on just temporary buildings made of corrugated plastic and bits of sheeting. Still each to his own.
