|Strolling along in Jerez de la Frontera|
Apparently the weather there in that part of the country has not been too brilliant this winter and I think my daughter was told that it has been the coldest and wettest for fifteen years ....which is typical really.But! my week there early on in the month was gloriously warm and sunny with beautiful blue skies only interrupted by the flitting of butterflies and the pleasing sight of Swallows on the wing.....they won't appear here for at least another month at the earliest.Plus you could hear Chiff Chaffs chiff-chaffing,Storks making nests and there were LIZARDS and Orange trees EVERYWHERE!! How exotic can you get in February!!!
I didn't take too many photo's as I was just tooo excited and enjoying being there but here are a few...
|It doesn't take much to amuse me|
|Jerez de la Frontera|
|Our visit to Jerez included a trip to Gonzalez Byass,makers of Tio Pepe,where we just had to sample some of what was on offer.|
|Gibraltar as we left the marina for a trip out to sea.|
|Vejer de la Frontera|
Again it being up on a whopping big hill top I didn't like to get too close to the edge!
|Steep drop on other side of balustrade but wonderful views all the same.|
So all in all despite the lack of photo's a wonderful week filled with eating delicious food,drinking gorgeous wine and sherry marred only by some hair raising moments driving up cobbled narrow streets following dubious sat nav directions ( not me driving I hasten to add)and most of all just basking in the delight of warmth and sunshine.
|thumbs up to sunshine,ice cream and holidays.|
