Discovering a new life in Costa Almeria

Having made the decision that full time work really is bad for your health,my husband convinced me that we should get 2 puppies and retire early. What I hadn't anticipated was that retirement would see us in Almeria, in southern Spain. This is our story from making the decision to move to our life here. For more posts read the full blog at What I hadn't realised was that I wasn't ready to retire so after 2 years we are back in the UK. However, when I am finally ready to retire - Spain is still in the mix.

It's a Bank Holiday - Of Course it's raining!
01 May 2009 @ 17:50

From the heading you would be forgiven for thinking I was back in the UK, but no, I am still in the south of Spain and we only just managed to complete our game of golf this morning before the heavens opened.

As we were finishing the 16th the umbrellas were needed but it was still quite playable, then the rain seemed to ease off for a while until we got halfway down the 18th fairway and it started to rain for real. We were the lucky ones that managed to finish and get into the club house without getting too wet. Those after us were all coming in drenched.

So, a bank holiday and the beaches are empty, the bars are full and the skies are cloudy although the rain has now stopped.

Sound familiar?
