Christmas @ Sanlucar de Barrameda

A short hop up to Sanlucar De Barrameda and we are soon settled in on Alphonso's fine site for the festive period
Same as last year but with chums Keith & Chris for good company


We secure a fine spot down one end of the site and get settled in for the duration


Next day we are off on the bus to nearby Sanlucar and a visit to the fish market for lunch




'Captain Nemo' characters stare back at us from amongst the myriad of different species of fish on sale at the indoor market 



We make our purchases from the stalls and hand over the goodies to the guys running the cafe at one end of the market who cook them and bring them to our table, along with a few beers..
A perfect lunch!



And don't you forget it!



Just in case anyone needs a ferret?



Some Sherry girls we found whilst walking back from town


Christmas Eve sees the guys visit 'The Count of Monte Cristo' in his humbly extended sherry emporium just a short walk away. 



Advanced camping party with Alphonso (right)


Back at base we just chill for the rest of the day and light a fire to stargaze later, Rudolph spotting the skies...


Numpties on Xmas morning


Cava on Camera



Chris is pleased with her diamond tiara LOL



Top Christmas spread and sat in the sun to boot


You may well grin Keith...


Boxing day means 'Cycling Day' so off we go on a 50km jaunt along to Chipiona & Rota




The view over the water to Cadiz


A cheery wave to distant chums..
(look at our guilt-ridden faces)
