    Sanlucar de Barrameda

    January 8 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 8 °C

    Ronda - Sanlúcar de Barrameda ca. 131 km
    Die Nacht war einigermaßen ruhig und wir sind wieder sehr früh“on the road“
    Die Strecke führt uns durch Berge, Täler und Olivenhaine, alles sehr schön anzusehen, herrliches Wetter noch dazu, was will man mehr.
    In Sanlúcar auf einen Camping/ Stellplatz für 10€ alles dabei, stehen wir erstmal in Ruhe.
    Eike und Reinhard getroffen, alte Freunde aus Fortuna, so klein ist die Welt wieder. Am nachmittag ein kleiner Spaziergang am Meer, lecker Kaffee getrunken und liebe nette Menschen kennengelernt, was will man mehr.
    In der Bodega ein paar Flaschen Sherry ergattert, so kann es bleiben.

    Chipiona

    September 3 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    So. Da wir ja mal Meter machen müssen, sind wir heute von Isla Christina zuerst auf Nebenstraßen, dann auf der Autobahn (Meter machen!) über Sevilla nach Jerez gefahren. Der geplante Stellplatz dort war eher nicht so toll. Eher Mist.

    Also habe ich noch 30 Minuten Fahrzeit drangehängt und wir sind nach Sanlúcar gefahren, wo mittlerweile auch Schilder stehen, die uns vertreiben. Egal. War eh windig und heiß, ohne Bierzapfanlage in Reichweite. Dementsprechend sind wir jetzt in Chipiona, wo man es - im Restaurant am Strand - aushalten kann, auch wenn die Belegschaft bis 21.00 frei hat. Bier gibt es ja...

    Morgen steht uns dann alles offen: Bolonia, Valdevaqueres, Tarifa, Gibraltar....

    Arrival chipiona

    February 22, 2018 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 11 °C

    Well all the arrangements worked well. We got the train to Jerez airport and got the hire car, drove back into to Jerez to get all our bags and drove to chipiona. The apartment is right overlooking a fabulous beach and has great views out to sea, along to the lighthouse, and overlooking the main church. The town is mostly dead - it's a seaside town out of season, we'll have see if more restaurants open at night. The apartment has a great roof terrace where we sat with a glass of sherry and watched the sun go down. It look due west so the sunset views are spectacular. We'll drive back to the airport for midday tomorrow to meet Natalie and Andy and the kids. I hope they like itRead more

    The Armstrongs arrive

    February 23, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    Mostly everything was ok at the airport. The flight arrived early, but their hire car wasn't ready so that held us up a bit. They settled into the apartment and checked the terrace and the beach. Finlay has been learning some Spanish words so it was really nice to here him saying hola or Gracias. It's great that the apartment is just over the road so they can come and go as many times as they ok. I think that tomorrow will be a day for sunshine and rest!Read more

    The rain in spain . . .

    February 26, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    It was another sunny morning so we went back to the beach and Finlay built his first sandcastle (with a little help!) . we had just come in for lunch and set out a table of food out on the roof when an enormous storm blew in with strong wind and rain so we had to rush it all back inside. The weather forecast was for clouds and rain showers all this week, so I guess it's arrived!Read more

    Stormy weather

    February 27, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    A big storm blew in during the night with torrential rain and strong winds. Fortunately the rain had stopped by morning and the wind died down enough that it was ok. Natalie and Andy had a day out to visit Jerez, that Andy hasn't been to before, and sent us pictures of having chorros and chocolate for breakfast, and tapas for lunch, and walk around the centre of the city. Back in chipiona, the sun was out and it was nice even in the wind, so they went down to the beach and flew a kite. People were kit-surfing but Andy decided that do that in the atlantic in February would be a bit cold!Read more
