Very warm this morning

So before the roast dinner Sharon so kindly prepared, we went up to the 10th century castle with their two young sons James and William and the dog Robbie for walk.

We were kept excellently informed by the boys of all the historical facts (along with a few not so historical facts) of Calatayud – their knowledge having been acquired from the local primary school they attend. The views of the town were just stunning and you could see to the east the remains of the Roman city of Bilbilis and the bull ring and churches down below in the centre of town.

We left around 4pm and headed back home being greeted by torrential rain just after Pamplona all the way to the back to Bordeaux but I can’t complain as it’s the first bad weather I have seen for about 7 months!
