    That does look good, today I was thinking weather is good and at last after too long I'm thinking it wont be long before I'm ready to venture out on bike. Keep tempting me with pictures like that!

    On a more worrying note 2 ducks crossed the road today and started swimming in the drainage ditch at the side of the road ! Seems nature is starting to take over the road side waterways!

    I'd be laughing at this normally.... But I suspect it's true 😂🦆🦆

    It’s been dry for a few days and the weekend looks good, I think I need a bit of 2 wheel therapy to escape the virus!

    ¨ Is it the same in Europe ?¨
    Definitely not --- that´s why I´m here in southern Spain, where we have not seen rain for weeks.
    Yorkshire is a lovely place, on a fine day, but those were getting rarer every year.
    I sold my house in 2015, and came here the following January and the year was spent looking at properties from rented accommodation.
    It is a complicated business, Spanish bureaucracy is monumental and whimsical in the extreme, but a good agent (NOT the estate type) will steer you through the maze.

    Last winter was fairly wet, maybe 10 to 15 days of rain in four months. Summer has been truly scorchio, but I´m high enough to get a cooling breeze.
    In summer wearing the usual riding gear is impossible in the heat, so people, even on the motorway ride in sandals shorts and T-shirt.
    It doesn´t half make you careful ...
    Winter allows me a bit of protection for my old bones, and the air is clearer which improves my view of the African coast and ships on the Med.

    My trees depend on me for their water for most of the year, I have two streams which I can divert around the terraces, and various hose pipes reaching important spots.
    (I´ve just had to don my head torch and wander up the garden to turn a hose off before it flooded the drive.)
    Since the sixties folk here have been leaving their cortijos in the hills for the electricity and employment offered by the towns.
    Now the towns are dangerously crowded and employment has withered.
    A house in the seclusion of the foothills, with solar power and a large fertile garden is becoming an increasingly good idea.
    There are seats everywhere in the pueblo, there are very few in Lancaster, ´cos no-one likes to sit on a wet seat in the rain.
    So I´d say ¨Go South !¨
    I´ve checked the globe, and it´s all downhill ...
