We stayed in Moraira for most of the first 3 months of this year,with just a brief sortie to Dublin and England for genealogical searches. In mid April we departed for a 10 day custom made Spanish course in Getaria and the Pyrennees after my stint of teaching first year Bridge had ended. In late May we returned, via France and the Monaco Grand Prix, to Corisande and almost immediately departed for Australia. In August we had 5 days each in Chelmsford and Wales, tracing my Turners, Meads & Parchments and David's Pughs & Evans. Must have also stayed with Hazel and went to see Philippa and Brian. Back in Moraira we had our first - and last- cycling holiday together in the Duero and Portugal: I broke my wrist on the last day!!. We first stopped in Abalos, then in Molinos de Duero near Soria,- mushroom hunting- then Santo Domingo de Silos - Gregorian chants-, then just north of Benavente, before arriving in Chanceleiros, Portugal. I returned to find I was the sole teacher for the Improvers bridge classes!!, so David had to become my chauffeur. We rushed from our Spanish lessons in Calpe with Mercedes, sometimes via physio with Apollonia in Moraira, to Javea and lunch along the Arenal if there was time. David would collect me from Ted & Maureen's after 6 and we would proceed to Terra Vina for more Spanish, followed by a Tapas supper. Thursdays we still had triple Spanish, with a brisk walk through Calpe to Marie Rosa's for an hour's chat. The plaster came off after 5 weeks and Sudek's syndrome set in!. Christmas saw us in Valencia for a couple of nights.
