    Pipe dreaming again. It is a very wet and particularly miserable day here in Merseyside (and I guess much of England), so come on, all you experienced continental travellers, what could we expect of the weather right now, or maybe February in Spain?

    It ain't going to happen this year, but we can dream, can't we? Put some colour in the dream by telling us it never rains in Spain, or at least, if it does, not for a fortnight on end, like here.

    The reality is probably going to be a couple of weekends at a full amenity C&CC site (yes, boring, predictable, we know, but at least we know we can drive off), but a little hacked off to see Christmas/New Year rates the same as summer school holidays - commercial pressures I suppose.

    Sat here, the rain is pounding on the roof and the heater is pumping out the warm air.

    :Cool: Sat in the RV on Camping Almafra with the rain pounding on the roof and the heater not turned ON yet this Winter.
    Have Long Johns on under my jogger bottoms and an extra Jumper under my Cardigan with a Blanket over my legs to keep out the cold. :thumb:

    How dare you both spoil our pipe dream!

    There we were, imagining you, at most, with light sweaters, walking the promenade, choosing which restaurant to go to, planning an invigorating swim in the Med in the morning, before a light lunch, a siesta, and who knows what after.

    Instead the rain seems as bad as ours. Well, I bet your rain is warmer than ours!

    :Cool: Actually until today the weather has been the best Winter weather that we can remember. Apart from the 2 week storms in September while our daughter was visiting.
    For instance yesterday, we had a leisurely afternoon game of Boules with our Dutch friends. Followed by Wine and nick-nacks. Followed by a steady drive to the Hong Kong Chino for the evening meal. Followed by a leisurely stroll along the road to walk the Dog and allow the ladies to peruse the Chino Bazaars and do a little shopping. :thumb:

    Hi
    We have been in Almeria since mid october wall to wall sunshine except for a 10 min shower last week and a lousy day on sunday when the pig roast took place had to retire to Bens giant awning and drown our sorrows.
    I find the worst thing about wintering in Spain is listening to the uk news and media so depressing i know i shouldn,t

    Of course the big difference is that it was quite warm and sunny here [20k inland from Marbella] the day before yesterday, as it has been for some weeks.........then it rained heavy yesterday, but we were not up to our necks in flood water or forced to stay inside. Today there is no ice or frost to be found and it has returned to wall to wall blue, warm and dry..........

    Quite [not] looking forward to a short return to the UK next week!
