Piccies…..

Our new pitch

Taking it all in his stride…

Exploring – ‘what’s around this wall?’

‘Oh….just more grass’

Never seen a grasshopper this big before!! he was a monster….

We are on the Atlantic coast now and its a lot wilder but very picturesque.

Long stretch of white sandy beach in the distance to be explored at the weekend…

It has a very different feel to it here than up in the mountains at Iznate. It is hotter although the last two days have been very windy (about 35mph). This area is notorious for its winds (ahem) with the world windsurfing championships regularly being held just up the road in Tarifa.

We are about 30km from Cadiz with our nearest town being Conil de Frontera. We are not far from Gibraltor and you can easily get ferries across to Tangers from here. From Cadiz you can take the train into Sevilla, which we plan on doing during our stay.

So with lots to explore and fit in around work I think we are in for a busy month…..

  1. Hi Helen

    As it happens we are going to Gibraltar (my birth place) in May. We will be there between 25th May and 4th June…any chance you will be close enough to meet up perhaps..yoga session on the terrace! My Mum and Dad are renting an apartment for 6 weeks and we are visiting for 10 days over half term to relive some early memories…(not that I can remember being born!) and show the kids my Mum and Dad’s favourite place they lived..

    Let me know xx

    ps something you didn’t know about me is that my middle name is Gizelle (named after one of the gibraltarian kids in my Mum’s primary school class that she taught when she was expecting me!)

  2. Hi Leigh,

    Would have loved to have met up and share a yoga session but unfortunately we leave here on the 5th May and head into Portugal for the summer.

    Such a shame but hopefully catch up another time. Am home in June for a visit so I may try and arrange a visit up to Bury if I can fit everything in.

    Have fun in Gibraltar, we visited there years ago on another Spanish holiday. xx
