August 19, 2010
Arrived back in Benalmadena in the early hours of the 19th. August 2010. Gosh aren’t we lucky. We were greeted by the first rain that they have had since our previous visit in July. Not just a little rain, it was absolutely torrential. The upshot being that by the time we got from the taxi to the boat we looked as if we had been standing in a shower for 20 minutes. Perhaps the Gods were trying to tell us something!!
Anyway, awoke the next morning to glorious sunshine. Busied ourselves with a few boat type jobs and on the 26th. August had a really lovely trip to Gibraltar. Stayed for two days in a heatwave 42 degs; topped up with diesel and the obligitory shop at Morrisons.
Returned to Benalmadena and continued with boat preparations for our move to Almerimar.
A really lovely surprise for us on the 7th. September was a visit from an old friend who we hadn’t seen for 42 years. We were able to catch up with each others news. As I am sure you can imagine, it was quite expansive swopping stories as to what had been going on in our lives, in particular children, and grandchildren. The highlight of her visit was a trip out into the bay where Lindy still showed she can hang onto the ‘Buoys’. (See Pics). and a visit from some very playful dolphins.
So here we are on the 14th. September, preparing for our departure, looking forward to fulfilling our dream.
Before closing the Benalmadena chapter we would like to thank so many people for their help and friendship. They will be sorely missed.
