I chose to go down to Las Norias this week after checking the long range weather forecast last week. It predicted sun with clouds. As Richard chauffeured Val and I south on the E15/A7 motorway in pouring rain I was getting very worried! But as we approached Almeria the rain turned to drizzle, then ahead of us we could see brightness and even small patches of blue sky and sun. We met up with Alan, Rod, Colin and Sandra at the Jct 420 service station. After a coffee, with biscuits supplied by Sandra, we made our way to Las Norias. Upon our arrival the sky was full of birds, many eating the millions of midges.
