Weekend with the Jetset

 Had a busy weekend with trips east and west from 6am on Saurday until 11pm Sunday - life with the jetset. There were 4 or 5 jets trailing their tails over the road east to Santander as they all headed South in formation with the sun rising behind them. This was us both heading to a leadership team meeting which lasted just over 9 hours. By Sunday evening we sneaked off to the boat and anchored in a secluded cove.. spying a saltire on a boat nearby we met Petra and Andrew who had apparently followed us out from Scotland and are spending the summer exploring the coast of Spain. As a result of all the chat we were 45 minutes late for church, but heh, this is Spain - more folk came in after us than were there before us, oops!

Four Nations

Had a wee visit on Saturday of friends from four nations: Paul & Rose Harvey, who were our Candidate Directors when we were being orientated into WEC and Gladys who is the hint of humour in all WEC Spain gatherings.. needless to say she is the Irish fly half. Rose is reputedly Welsh and plays full back and Les is of course the Scottish prop. The English wings are either end and we never saw the hooker.

Reaching Ribadeo (Well nearly!)

Almost resident in Ribadeo... Marga my language partner from Santa Eugenia is at home with her parents and they have given us a wee apartment to live in til we get into our flat in September So happy to meet her here in her own pueblo. Then today we got a visit from WECers from Gijon to welcome us to the north of Spain. If you look carefully you can see Rene has hidden a bottle under the table before we took the photo - it was diet coke, honest!

Another happy arrival

Another happy arrival, not a baby this week but a boat. Les was surprised and delighted to arrive in Spain a week ahead of schedule, here he is tied up for the winter, very relieved and with a week of spare time... I did suggest he put some photos up for the blog but I see none so far!
