Mar 13, 2015 - Last day in the south of Spain

Friday morning - our last day in Chiclana before we head to Madrid tomorrow morning. We slept in a bit as we planned to leave at 11:00 to return Opal to the rental car place at the Cadiz train station. When Steve and I came downstairs around 9:30 we found Maria in the kitchen cooking us breakfast - we are so spoiled!

Mar 4, 2015 - A somewhat lazy day

I had a wonderful blog post all written in Word and when I went to copy it to the blog, I lost it. :( So until I can recreate it, you will have to settle for some pictures instead! Recreated my deleted blog post! Our morning started early, but the rest of the house wasn't quite awake yet so Steve and I sat out in the sun watching the cats and the chickens. Maria fixed us a wonderful breakfast with fresh eggs, bacon, sausage and a fresh orange. Later, Maria was ready to head out so the three of us walked down the road towards the flamenco...
