Yesterday was spent doing more bits on the boat. The
excitement came in the early evening when Yoyo had plucked up courage to go
outside at last. Then the horrible stray cat jumped on board. Koshka was a hero
and fought him off – we ran on deck to see Koshka with a mouth full of
white fur. Poor Yoyo ran back inside and hasn’t reappeared since. Therapy
will be starting from scratch for her.
Today we had a day out to Almeria. We had planned to drive into the
hills, however the poor weather changed the plan. We arrived and spent the
first 20 minutes queuing up for a parking space, All that time learning how to “stalk”
shoppers in Milton Keynes for parking spaces paid of handsomely – those Spanish
had no chance. We then walked around town and ended up at the Alcazaba (Spanish
Almeria has been a
port since the Roman times. The castle has changed hands and been used by many
different powers since the 10th century hence it has many influences
such as Moorish and Christian. In 1522 a large part was destroyed in an
earthquake. A lot of the castle has since been restored.
We returned home this afternoon to let Koshka defend the
boat against pirate cats.
