We are having a beach day. Neil is having a field day in the bathroom.

I was silly when I was making the supper, as I used the ambient poopers (peppers) rather than the frozen ones. Now these will be left over. Perhaps I can put them in my suet caas. Neil has come out of the bathroom so I can go in.

We went down to the beach one way and came back another. Lunch was delicious. The sea was gelato (very cold) so I didn't go in. The ice melt from the mountains must have got into it. We looked at tracks on the beach and I will need to look in my Christmas track book to discover what they are. A sad spaniel was tied up outside our apartment. He had been in the plunge (sea) and his family were obviously waiting for him to dry out before letting him back indoors.

Tomorrow at 8am we go back to Málaga - with Antonio and go back with Flybe to Norwich. Until we get to Alicante, we shall have to go via Stansted as there are flights from there to both Almería and Murcia which will be our next two airports. In February, we shall walk from Motril to Adra or beyond.

For lunch we had advocado a bought one - not scrumped, alioli, onion, morons, olives, salman, lemon and asparagus and yoghurt. For supper we are having bacon, baked vegetables stuffing and satsumas and tree decorations. The remaining decorations we will bring to La Rábita to warm us up as the house may well be cold. This one with central heating has been bliss during the cooler evenings and nights.


Tuesday

Antonio is on time with his taxi. We arrive at the airport before the chickin (check in) desks open. We check in early and Neil takes a photo of my two cheeses I bought at Mercadona as presents. They are called Tetillon cheeses and look like boobies. Mini then says I should hold them up in the appropriate place so I do and he takes another photo. Neither picture came out. Perhaps Neil was shaking the camera with laughter. The plane waits on the runway for an hour because its flight plan has been changed and this means taking on more fuel before taking off and then takes a further extra hour because the longer route and strong headwind. As usual the computer got the blame. "To err is human but to really foul things up, you need a computer." Our cases appear in double quick time as the plane was small, not full and with many passengers not having luggage at all. Ian is waiting for us at Norwich with Teddy (the dog) who is pleased to see us but hardly aware we were gone.
