Looks like my text 2 lj got lost in the mix. Back from sunny Murcia now. How did we manage to overlook the fact that it was Carnival out there? Our quiet escape from it all turned out a bit WickerMan in parts (Aguilas) and a bit like a Bournemouth bustop in others ( Mar Menor). I must pluck up the courage or company to drive for my next journey- it's so frustrating seeing all the lovely landscape but being hemmed in by the bus networks. Best moment- a glass of 1866 Brandy.
