(This is the village Callela in evening light. You can see the sea in a small alcove which also has a lovely little beach. If you click on the photo you can get a kingsize view as I didn't resize the photo.)
All good things must come to an end. I didn't want to leave the coast in Spain but life and it's responsibilities are now part of the daily routine. We had a fantastic time, although alot busier than last year because August is officially the French and Spanish holiday month.
We had a beautiful appartment with a panoramic view over the sea, the weather could not have been better and the sea was nice and warm at 24°. The first day I got stung by a jelly fish which reacted after a week and spread around my leg. It left a very irritating rash which I still have. After that we noticed that special warning flags are up when jelly fish are detected near the shore line. I really enjoyed the sea though!
We got news after four days on holiday that our cat had escaped from it's temporary home and was roaming the streets. Talk about a cat having nine lives, I think our cat has one or two left because he has only just returned! My DH spotted him around noon. He is hiding in a hole in a ditch and we will have to wait until he can get over his bruised confidence in us to come home. I was so thankful that he was still alive and had found the way home from the village where he had never been before - incredible!
I still have so much to do that I will share photos probably gradually over the coming weeks, just going with the flow at the moment.
This is one of the cards I made when I got the opportunity. Alot of the time I just loved watching the Olympics as the appartment belonged to an English couple who had English satellite TV.
Hope you are all well and still enjoying the summer!
O yes, the cat has definately rejoined us - just as well as he is a super mouse-catcher!
