The Lake

NegratinThought we’d go for a drive this afternoon – we had to pick up some stuff at Baza anyway and so spent the afternoon at Lake Negratin – this time in a more secluded spot. It’s amazing that you can have such beauty to yourself.

Back now, a quiet night in tonight, I’ve a little wiring and tidying up to do as we have some guests coming over tomorrow night. Looking forward to a weekend of no Skype calls. Lovely.

Situation in Gibraltar does not seem to be improving which is a shame as we’re driving down there in a week or so. You have to wonder about the mentality of the Spanish authorities… Brits and Spanish alike travel across Spain to get to Gibraltar, spending money on fuel, food and even overnight stays so they can go visit Gibraltar – and that do the authorities want to do? Make it NOT worthwhile to go – hence losing all that revenue – no wonder the country is broke. You’d think they’d be ENCOURAGING travel back and forth if it comes over Spanish soil.
