It is our habit to go and get a bit of winter sun this time of the year so last Saturday, Mary and I got up in the early hours and headed for Luton Airport – Alison (daughter) providing the transport.
Several hours later we touched down in Malaga, the wind was a bit cool but the sun was shining – we reached our accommodation and I was sitting on the sea view balcony soaking up the rays by 14:00.
It rained that night, and right through to Tuesday. The weather wasn’t much better the rest of the week, including one point were we were in a blizzard – yup that’s what I said, SNOW.
Still, we didn’t let that stop us from enjoying ourselves – we had a great time visiting Brian and Jen, who showed us their country home, and on a two day visit to Gibraltar.
While we were in Gibraltar Mary made her first visit to a casino – I got off lightly coming away £20 down on the night having spent around three hours at the wheel and slot machines.
I have posted the first batch of photos here – more to come once they are developed.
