    Last day

    March 1, 2018 in Spain ⋅ 🌬 14 °C

    It was a wild night with Gale force winds and much rain. We have all had a virus this week with high temperatures , headaches and tiredness but it has not prevented us from having fun. Despite the continuing gales force winds and frequent showers there has been much sunshine today. We all went for a last lunch out at a tapas restaurant and after naps, Natalie, Andy, Finlay and Emily went for last walk on the beach and Finlay fell over into the water trying to avoid a big wave. Madness!
    We are hoping that our return flight to Stansted will operate as normal but are dreading delays and a nightmare drive to Lincoln for Andy and Natalie.

    February 28, 2018 in Spain ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    It's andulcia day here - a public holiday - and another storm blew in during the night. Torrential rain and strong winds, but that wasn't going to stop Finlay going to the beach!

    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

    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

    Afternoon on the beach

    February 25, 2018 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

    It was quite cloudy this morning but lovely this afternoon so we spent it on the beach. It was Emily's first time on the sand and she loved it, and jumping in the waves seems to be inherited from her mother!

    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
