Epilogue: Farm, Finca and Beach.
It’s November now. The leaves have nearly all blown off the trees, the clocks have gone back, the days are short and memory of warm sunshine and adventure and careless fun seems long ago.

As I approach it looks normal, it takes money but does it want to? No. As I puzzle over the confusion of the machine, a 'man sweeper', starts talking in Catalan, I respond in Spanish, luckily he responds in Spanish.
