Holiday!

Thanks to my dear friend Heather, I had the most wonderful week in Spain, arriving back last Wednesday at crack of dawn. Where has the week gone?!

It's 35 years since I last went to Spain and I've never been up in the mountains - the last one I climbed was Carder Idris when I was 11. So I was utterly stunned by the majesty of the landscape. The picture above is the view from their terrace as the sun went down. And the weather was HOT!

Even so, we managed some stunning walks - up various mountains, through vineyards and orange trees, we swam every day, attended a Moors v Christians procession one night, and had some relaxed reading time and enjoyed eating and drinking outside every day.
I'm quite in love with the place and it did me a lot of good to get right away from everything. I missed my darling Moll terribly (and vice versa), but it was worth it to have a week in such a stunning place, and with such good company.

Just as well as life has been very stressful since I got back, but hopefully things will resolve soon!

Glad to hear that you had a lovely time. It looks like heaven and sounds as if it was just what you needed to re-charge your batteries. I bet Moll was really glad to see you when you got back. Take care.

Hi Sue,
Glad to see your post.
Your evening at Heligan sounds wonderful and very different from a normal performance! Sometimes it's good to take a step out side the box, isn't it?
I hope life is getting better for you now.
Love to Moll
