Lazy day hanging around, practicing my flamenco rhythm, taking ages to put all eight basic right hand strokes together. It’s the slapping the body part way is the bit that’s putting me off, never been a problem in the past. Beach is 300mts away, Jake loves it running helter-skelter like a puppy.

Maureen is cursing me that I told her she didn’t to bring her puffer coat. Don’t get me wrong it’s not cold but it’s that in between temperature 10c… Continue reading Search for sun delayed 28.02.17
