###I’m having problems uploading my photos to this post at the moment. So they’ll have to follow in an updated edit when I can sort it out! Apologies! !
So, here we are, away in the van once more after a long stay at home settling in Pixie. The little puppy has settled in very well, and loves playing with Mutley. She’s now house trained and the only thing I think needs mastering properly is her use of the dog flap, she can go out, and she can go in, but she’s not yet done it on her own volition. More treats required!
Spring has been interesting this year, as normally we are away so we miss the lovely sights around Orba of the almond and cherry blossom, and our wisteria which has come on in leaps and bounds across the front of the house. We have both been busy, Bruce with some gigs and me with my baglets, and so we eventually left home after a May Fayre in Jalon that I had a stall at, and Bruce was playing at. It’s always a lovely event so we wanted to make sure we could do it before we had a break in the motorhome.
Having missed our normal January /February jaunt to Portugal, we decided that we’d do Portugal now, which means the weather is warmer, and we see a different side with the later evenings setting in. So after leaving home we managed to get to Baza,on the high plain leading to Granada, for the first nights stop, before heading down to Fuengirola for a few days on the Costa del sol. I spent some of the journey shelling peas that Deb and Jim had delivered, picked fresh from her lovely veg garden – she is my GG – Garden Goddess!
We spent a week inbetween Fuengirola and Cala Mijas, before moving onto Portugal. A quick stop in Castro Marim provided the necessary soft Portuguese bread rolls before we parked up at Altura for a couple of nights.
