Boyzz Life in 2020.

We came back from Malta in early January and made ourselves at home again in Moraira, before going out to a special dinner at the Dauphin the next night

6 wines were supplied by a Valencia bodega. Once it started, the food was great. Bert & Caterina were welcoming hosts

On January 21st we went to the Opera., Elektra, in Valencia .

A pleasant lunch on arrival in Valencia. Followed by Tapas in a local bar after the 1 Act (=no posh tapas) Opera

 

Then we had to bid a tearful Farewell to Lausanne Ted- his 46 plus years had worn him out

before lunching on 5 Tapas at El Templo restaurant in Benidoleig

Their visit was followed immediately by a 5 day trip to Berlin

And then, our last outing before the great Coronavirus lockdown, a long weekend in Catalonia

The great Coronavirus Lockdown started on March 15th and for 58 days, during whish we were not even allowed outside in the streets for a walk: luckily, being the only bears present in our Media Luna Urbanisation, we could stroll around the pool so did not accumulate too much excess weight( though, to disperse the general gloom, the madre was quite generous with our treats!). Then until Lockdown 98 ( and we counted all these days down ourselves!) we were allowed out for once a day within a kilometre radius. And . . . we were allowed out for outside meals

Celebrated the madre's birthday- cake on the small size! . . Monitored her walking laps on the pool terrace. Tried to avoid the road blocks & cheered on the fire fighting plane

Unfortunately the madre decided we were a trifle scruffy! But we did receive lots of corks- Cava a Lockdown treat!

First outing in 60 days- Cafe 19 and some funny masks!

Tha State of Alarm ended on Lockdown 99 and on Lockdown 100, June 22nd, we had our suitcase packed and were wending our way North East to Asturias- a 9 hour car journey. There we stayed for 10 gorgeous days with Alfredo & Jimena- the padres tried to persuade us they were perfecting their Spanish, but, us lads, we did not notice much improvement!!
