    Back in Sunny Spain.



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Arrived Weds in a hot & crowded Malaga, one of my favourite cities, but not in Holy Week.

    Saw the biggest cruise ship in the world “Symphony of the Seas” in the harbour, amazing!.

    Made a big ricket, didn’t realise the shops were shut on Thurs & Fri for Semana Santa , so didn’t have any food or drink for 2days.

    Might get out of here for the rest of Holy Week, thinking of going to one of the villages in the hills, where the celebrations are still outrageous, but on a smaller scale & more intimate, somewhere like Archidona or Antiquera.
    Britons were wild camping long before campsites, it's a basic human right.

    Antiquera is nice.

    Osuna is nicer.

    We've got a big celebration in Sao Bras. It's on national television.
    They lay a 2km Pathway made up of a carpet of flowers and herbs.. All very decorative. The womenfolk are up at dawn, arranging 1 metre collages on the streets

    The procession starts at midday...Nobody, but Nobody, ever disturbs it.. The black grannies would flay them alive.

    The workers guilds all follow the Bishop and his attendant God botherers, Town VIPs and the town band, as they walk over the carpet. Each man carries a 5 foot, flower bedecked broomstick .. Made by their womenfolk.
    There's a strong aroma of herbs and flowers, tinged with the whiff of moth balls from the, rarely used, men's best suits.

    They stop every 10 metres to chant/ bellow 6 , " HALLELUJAH s ", .The neighbours come out with tots of Brandy, Port, or the homemade firewater.

    You can imagine the state of these pious chaps, when they finish the circuit... Some 3 hours later!

    You'll have to book flights, Linda.. not even Lee, the Stirling Moss of Wildcamping, could drive you down in time.

    Bring your Pacamacs , Storm Irene is just tip toeing in... Lovely warm, gentle rain.


    Our Son, Wife and Grandkids , arrive tomorrow . After their foul winter, they are desperate for a hot beach.

    Daughter in law has decided that we are going up on Sunday... Come rain or shine .

    We've booked a table for a traditional Easter lunch, after the parade.

    Since arriving in Spain from Morocco, we’ve managed to go to sleep at night to the sound of the sea.

    First night at Torreguadiaro, then 9 nights in various sea-front spots in Malaga, then 2 nights on the dunes at El Morche, had to leave this one due to V high winds causing sand-storms.

    We then went to Calahonda where we were sheltered from the wind by the high cliffs behind the town, had 2 nights here.

    We then drove further up the coast, saw a few vans on the beach at Villaricos by a bar, noticed it was on *************, think it’s also on the POIs. There’s a sheltered beach by the small port with showers where we had a swim, water temp was 16deg. Might stay here for a few days.

    Come further south.
    The locals tell us there's 4 hours of heavy rain and then nothing much til next Autumn.
    Trouble is we're heading north, next week. Hoping to follow the Douro river through From Porto to Burgos.

    Come down to the Spanish Costa’s, they seem to have missed out on the rain. We’ve had just a few spots.

    In La Azohia now, brilliant sunshine & the high winds have gone. Looks like a hot one.
