Sometimes, wherever you live, you can always find work to do around your home that stops you from enjoying your surroundings.  In London, I was always planning to go to this exhibition or that museum, and somehow, because you know it is on your doorstep you never get around to it.  It is no different here and at the cortijo there is always something to be done, fixed, painted etc. etc.


Anyhow, on Sunday we downed tools and went up to a lovely little village about 20 minutes from here called Bedar.  It is set high up and to get there you take a lovely scenic drive.  It is a very sleepy little village and whilst there is quite a large British community, (why wouldn’t there be, it is gorgeous!), it essentially is an unspoilt little Spanish village.  We have a friend who lives here and the view from his house is magnificent.   There is also a fantastic restaurant here called El Miramar – (Sea view being the literal translation) – you are high up and in the distance, you can, indeed, see the sea!  Take a trip up here just for the lamb alone – very delicious and extremely good value.  There are lots of little villages around Bedar, all worth an afternoon exploring with stops for Café con leche, and then on to the Miramar for a sun-downer and dinner.  Roll on summer.
