A visit to Sagra

It’s been an eventful couple of days since arriving here for the second time in a month. Young Manuel featured in my last blog item has a home with Peter and Anne which is great. A load of wood arrived yesterday, nice almond from a new supplier, not the crap we got last time which I’m sure was full of mites. Our neighbours helped us bring the wood in and one brought us a chilli yesterday which was really nice of them. This is the first day in a while I’ve not made any arrangements to talk to anyone, email anyone, fly anywhere, have a meeting etc so a relaxing car trip instead to Mt Sagra (That’s the bump right in the middle of the picture at the back).

No great plans other than to drive out to the mountain, have a wander around, take some pictures and relax. Eating could be an issue as the restaurant at the top is apparently closed (thanks to Adrian and Liz for that info).

It’s looking like another nice day, it’s been sunny here now pretty much constantly but it is cooling off so that at night it’s just maybe 10c – but during the day it can reach 20-25c no problem.

The really good thing about this time of year is that while the weather stays nice, many of the flying bugs have given up. Best of both worlds… just not QUITE hot enough to sit outside and BBQ at night but that will return, soon enough.

I’ve loads of stuff to do including writing papers, getting a controller running so I can turn the heating on and off remotely – and much more – but today that will all wait for tomorrow it could rain. VERY unlikely but you never know.
