We mentioned in our last post that we had to return to the UK, Judith’s father was ill and after a short illness he passed away whilst we have been home. We are thankfull that we were able to get back and spend some time with him during those last few weeks. Judith’s father made the first boat we had, we used to sail it in the Blackwater and on the Avon in Chippenham. it was a bit smaller than Island Girl , it was a home built Goblin called “Spindrift”. He will be remembered fondlly and was keenly following our travels. We wil be returning to Spain on the 7th August and look forward to exploring the North Spanish Coast. As we write this post we are experiancing a heat wave, the temperature in Bedford is 2C hotter than Bilbao.
