Well, as you can see from today’s photograph of 'sunshine over Canical', yesterday’s resolution has been achieved by this smug correspondent.
But sadly the wireless connection here is too intermittent to facilitate a timely brag, so I’ll have to seek out a ‘hotter’ spot tomorrow.
Dave and I met Alan and Christine as planned and we all enjoyed a smooth transit to our ‘place in the sun’, where the two of us have the pleasure of occupying Hugo’s huge apartment, which is within earshot of A & C’s second home. It’s a bit like the Marie Celeste here, apart from a resident pigeon, but we are making it more homely and we have fine Atlantic views towards the distant ‘Deserted Isles’.
After an excellent meal – I risked an experiment with ‘Chef’s Octopus’, the others enjoyed pork or Black Scabbard, we adjourned to A & C’s balcony to enjoy a few beers on this balmy evening.
We are nicely stocked up with provisions and looking forward to some exercise tomorrow.
