Life in 2022

back to Life in 2021

We returned to Moraira from Malta mid January 2022. Covid cases were high in Teulada, but we felt quite safe eating outdoors ; but many restaurants were closed for ´the low season. . We had Bert´s last sunday lunch, for 6 weeks, on January 16th.

Then a sparkling, Champagne dinner at Amantes with Carol ( Paul being in the UK). Unfortunately David somehow managed to pull a hamstring



Lots of Morning Bridging , and a wondrous swim in Carol´s heated pool, 19 degrees, on the last day of January, having just met Sue, whose genealogy I was doing, down there.

A day up to Bernia to enjoy the almond blossom, ending with a very good tabled'hote lunch in the repositioned Casa Canto in Benissa: but the ambiance not a patch on the old restaurant. The Boyzz knitted themselves new sweaters

April saw us up in La Ratatouille in Sanet y Negrals and enjoying a lunch with Bill and Brenda. Then back to their new flat in Orba where Bill had baked a delicious carrot cake . Edwood was there too, showing off his wardrobe


After this we avoided most social contact, in order to avoid the risk of contracting Covid - which would put pay to our super cruise. This mammouth 2 month cruise being the result of 2 years' worth of cancellations. So

Barbados to Svarlbard
