HOMETIME


Last day of this trip HE said lets run away from responsibilities and head south instead we are heading north to Bilbao But no expense spared we hit the toll road.. People have no idea how utterly lovely northern Spain is and this toll road took us up through the mountains and back down to sea inlets with bobbing boats .. We have been down to Santiago la Campostilio on the Green Coast road for Christmas 20 years back to see the Big Bong (incense swinger)being hauled through the cathedral by forty monks on Christmas Day and after into The posh Parador for hot chocolate .. All wonderful memories of North Spain

BIG wine shop … €100 worth and for us that’s good going as the most expensive we buy for ourselves is no more than €1.50 and as you can pick up a lt carton of vin rouge for 55c it’s a good one .. But birthday presents and thnx for looking after our pussies it has to be a special one or two.. Some Grand cru or something like that and the eternal Cava .. Slap a bit of Aprol and soda in it and one could dream of being in Venice

  
Lovely sunshine for our leaving .. A little bumpy but then at about 10pm change of direction .. We are searching for a vessel who has put out a mayday

Me and Him and Hetty like adventures ..We spend most of our summers sailing Now a little elderly for big boat racing and have turned to Radio Controlled Yachting competing nationally and even internationally ..I have travelled to many countries in my other life BJ (before John)lots of Indian backpacking trips. Panning gold in the Yukon..Pacific island hopping ..Far east and so on ..John won't go to India but I managed to get him to Morocco and Sri Lanka but didn't expect a Tsunami.
