Thanks for joining me!

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton


Well this is where we have got to Puntas de Calnegre (points of black lime!), arriving on 22nd October, and staying put until the 19th November. Our home here consists of a fisherman’s cottage with two bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen and bathroom! Sounds like the loo is next to the cooker, well it’s not, not quite.

Outside is a small back yard and a gurty great big beach. We are practically the only people here, so why so few houses but lots of restaurants? Friday afternoon arrives with increased activity. A restaurant that has been closed, opens. The Faro de Puntas extends to block our view. Hmmm what’s up Doc? Saturday arrives and so does half of Spain. Boats, cars, motorbikes and on foot they pour in, eat, drink, make merry and reluctantly leave. Sunday provides a repeat with even more people, if that were possible. And so onto Monday when peace reigns once more, only one bar open, and very few people. So now we know why there are many restaurants in our ghost town.
