Roger and Jo

Back in May we had been to Roger and Jo’s wedding in Malaga.   The plan had been to take the boat and our wedding present was to have been a day out.  But we didn’t manage to get there with the boat and on reflection a Monday morning sail after a weekend wedding reception wasn’t going to work; so we left them with an IOU.

We went out for a couple of meals in the evenings.   The first was a real disappointment but the second, to the Cerveceria Catalana was awesome.   We decided to walk back about 3 km each night to walk off our dinner.   After the first night we had to eat some snacks on our return, after the Cerveceria we managed to stagger back in the final stages of labour with our food babies!

It was a real pleasure to see Roger again; we’ve known each other for years and it was lovely to meet Jo properly.   We’d only really met her at her wedding and she had one or two other things on her mind then!   I’m fairly sure they enjoyed their wedding present and will come back and see us again somewhere else.
