Finally, “A Home away from Home”!!!!!

image image

Eureka!  Well folks, after all the searching and researching on the ‘net,  we have finally found it!   A country-side retreat away from the hustle and bustle, the cars and the scooters, narrow cobbled streets, ancient castles, churches and ruins.  We are in a cute little casa perched on a hilltop above the marshes of Barbate, overlooking the Atlantic, where it meets the Straits of Gibralter with gently rolling green hills which are dotted with bushy wild olive trees as a backdrop.  Our only neighbours are the birds and the cows, a few chickens ( yes, and a rooster….we’ll see what time he wakes up in the morning!).  There are many kilometers of walking trails and we have already planned out a walk for tomorrow!  The weather here is warm (about 23 C today) and very windy!  If it does turn cooler, we have a chiminea and lots of firewood.  So we will be here until November 24 when we fly  back to Amsterdam for a few days before heading home.
