Festive Sunshine

The New Year rapidly approaches and our time is filled with walking and cycling down familiar routes together with tripping in to Sanlucar to sample its evening life






Now if only we could find a chip shop!



Twitcher at play...



An afternoon is pleasantly spent walking in to Sanlucar to stroll the streets and seek out tapas



Armed with my trusty translation I try to seek out the guy who sharpens knives, to no avail so the belt knife will have to wait for another day 




Oh 'Deer' the girls are led astray by the hanging Hams....


The local Oloroso wine goes down a treat



Chums on tour!


The bikes are pressed in to action again and a trip down the superb cycleway to Chipiona and beyond takes up another fine day





Technically our route from a previous day but Keith and I go off this arterial route and discover another round trip back to base



Refreshments in Chipiona




The big night arrives, as does hoards of Spaniards, and the site fills up
Alphonso has prepped one of the 'tomato' greenhouses ready for the New Year's Eve shindig and we all take goodies to the party




Lots of wine and nibbles later the hour is toasted by a melee of mixed nationality sensation-seekers


Girlie silhouette 


Followed by the Daft Lads...



The next few days are spent unwinding and recuperating with walking and another trip in to Sanlucar topped off with a last night 'blowout' at a newly discovered bar in our locality

So we made it in to 2017....
Our reorganised festive location turned out to be far better than the one planned in so many ways
We've had a wonderful time here with our Chums and were blessed with superb weather
Both parties will be back soon to soak up more of this great area but its time to wander off in different directions....
We leave with very happy memories
Happy New Year to all!
