Blog nine.The rain in Spain is pouring down + another Orange dust cloud.

Weather is unpredictable we have had lots of rain and wind over the last ten days, plus Orange dust mixed in with the rain making everything orange. This is the second time we’ve had orange dust storms and it’s worse than the last time. The temperature has been around 17° not two bad. But the weather has not stopped us from doing things. We went to a local market selling fruit, veg, clothes and everything but the kitchen sink very reasonable prices.

Every thing gets covered in orange dust for the second time🤨.
Market day.
Spanish dancing lesson.

We’re not letting the weather stop us from enjoying ourselves, so went for a ride on the coast road to visited some of the lovely villages, Casatones, La Mamola, and La Rabita, a very quiet part of the Tropic coast. The industry around here is mostly fishing, farming and tourism. Driving along the coast road is beautiful great views so we dropped down a steep road into La Rabita for look around and a coffee.

We got a break in the weather in La Rabita but not for long. We have been in Spain for nine weeks now, the Spanish people say it’s the worst March weather they can remember. Never mind we’ve got three weeks of our holiday left we’ll be moving on next week up the Spanish coast into France.

25th of March is our 50th wedding anniversary. So we are celebrating with a meal in the best restaurant we can find in Castell Del Ferro, not many of them open this time of year.

Mussels to start with, followed by fish, main course Paella. 🙂
St James’s Church Sutton upon Hull.
50 years wed still going strong.
We took these photos on a 10-second timer what a performance, but we had a laugh 🤣

That’s all, for now, see you next time thanks for reading our blog x Derek and Pats Travels. Que todos tus problems seen pequenos
