Change of tack

Sunday, October 28th, 2018

It’s pissing down on a Sunday my day off, it’s also really cold, too cold for here at this time of year. This time last year we where sitting by the sea drinking beer at Sant Marti. Looks like it’s going to be cold until Monday. Last week it went from flip flop weather to winter and thick socks, stopped me treating the palm tree. I planted a vigorous climbing rose that I got from a cutting last year, it’s under the palm tree, just in case one day the palm tree finally sercums to the red palm weevil.thats the reason I planted a fig tree there as well although the fig is going to take a while to grow as it is not even a foot high and I planted it in October last year.
We went to the bar Friday night, it’s not Pepes bar anymore it’s Antionellas bar I suppose, it was nice Moira and I talked to each other which like most long term marriages doesn’t happen very often,not in a bad way but you tend to know what the other person is going to say as you was possibly there when the thing happened that they are going to talk about. We remained, not keen on reminiscing but some times it’s a good thing while in the local bar drinking wine and eating egg and chips.

PeƱiscola, a new fizzy drink or a small peninsula with a templars castle built on it surrounded by beach and tourism. We went there, to camp, to be tourist and to switch off for a couple of days. Get up when we wanted and siesta when we wanted. The castle was very interesting, the indian restaurant was good and the sun shone while allaround us were being rained on. Seen it, probably wont bother to go back.
We arrived home on the Friday,Malcom and Fiona took us out to eat at Can Batlle.
Saturday i worked with a little help from the team, then we went for a walk round Roses, shopping really.
Sunday the big day, the walk from Roses to Cadaques. The weather was perfect it rained once for 5 minutes, the 5 minutes that we where under pine trees. Always wanted to do it and really glad ive done it. Next time knowing how far it is we would probably take our time as 5 hours was pushing it including a half hour stop to eat. The bud back was interesting.
