... Ian at Xeraco at 0815, with the usual lengthy wait at the car hire place, we finally arrived at Julie and Andy's at 1715; a long day! It was great to see Anna, Andy and Julie. It didn't take long to dump our gear, change into swim shorts/costumes and dive into the pool to cool off and have a refreshing swim. And not long after that before I had a cold beer in my hand.

... an hour to get up to the castle by way of the main historical buildings and allowed an hour to look around the castle before returning by 2.30.
Once that was booked I walked up the hill to the older parts of town and ran into the Tuesday market that had about 40 stalls and catered mainly to the locals. By quarter to twelve I had to sit down and try to order a sandwich and a cuppa to get me through till teatime. It proved more difficult than I thought and I had to settle for ...
