Believe it or not, we do actually get ‘seasons’ here in Spain, although a bit mixed up. In the autumn the plants come back to life after a long hot summer and the desert becomes green again.
Never expected to take this photo! We had sleet but fortunately Los Chopos was just below the snow level.
Just two hours north in Alicante and further up to Valencia and all of Northern Spain had meters of snow.
We had the wettest December in 30 years and last week the coldest temperatures that some locals have ever known. Thank goodness we have another road to Antas, after the rambla filled up with water just before Christmas. Well we wanted an adventure!
So, time to turn on the cosy fire, snuggle up and dream of summer…
Steve and Freddie with their winter coasts!
Spot the difference?
Snug as a bug in an Ugg…
We tried iced tea but it was too bloody cold!!
Blimey it’s cold.
Thankfully, Spring is getting closer as we start to see almond blossom everywhere.
Freddie’s thought – I like to curl up in front of the fire with a good book. I’m currently reading “Hound of the Baskervilles”.
