165. A short stay in the sun ……….

Fiona and I have popped down to our property in Spain for a few days to get it ready for a much longer stay later in the summer and to prepare ourselves for the last few weeks as Master and Consort!

Our property is about 25 minutes up the coast from Gibraltar. With temperatures currently hovering around 30C and everything looking remarkably green it is easy to forget that during the winter this part of Spain suffered unprecedented rainfall and flooding with one poor resident of a basement property being drowned.

The closest town to us is Estepona and much work has been completed in recent years to restore the old town and it is an unspoilt, colourful and quiet working town.

Looking forward to seeing many of you at the remaining events of our year and to the Installation of Mike Williamson on 6th July as our 29th Master.

Photographs show one of the colourful streets of Estepona and a restored ancient doorway.
