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.
