Today I went to a rural area of Italy. It was very calm and quiet here. The people were really nice and gave us some of their food so that we could eat there with them. Their houses were built of pure bricks making them very stable and warm for those cold fronts that come in the winter.
I did nothing else because I wanted to take a break. I had enough relaxation for the day outside enjoying the great wind and beautiful sun. ...
... Rocio which is celebrated annually on Saturday, Sunday and Monday of Pentecost there
are up to 1.5 million visitors with a lot of them coming to the town on foot,horseback and in carts pulled by oxen.
As my son Gavin was due to arrive on Thursday we spent the first part of the week catching up with the washing and generally taking it easy, strolling down to the town, driving down to the beach at Matalascanas which is 15 minutes away.
... in the late afternoon and evening and enjoy the cool breeze.
We did not have air conditioning which was a bit of a trial one night as it was incredibly hot (it is august after all) but a bigger problem was the mosquitos which had fierce bites but they did not last long. I recommend getting air conditioning in the summer months and also buying a beach umbrella.
All in all this is a good place to chill for a week ...
... slight metallic knocking noise and was up investigating within minutes. The boat was turned upside down inside while I turned my mind to cooking us a meal. It was about 9.30pm by this time.
Steve managed to track the noise down to the prop shaft with a listening stick! Don't ask!
So the next day's task was to investigate for certain what he thought it was. We had our meal and settled down for the night.
... edge for some ice cold beer. We started walking but the heat was just too much so I'm afraid that I wasn't going any further so we turned back and headed to the bar again. A very pleasant couple of hours was spent there watching the Olympics on the TV and enjoying the company. We had a meal there too of cod, chips and egg but not as you and I know it! Still it was delicious and only a few euros.
