Gwynn, it is never often enough! If only I could convince my husband to go, I know he would love it, too! Someday. He's a homebody, though. :)
Ah, Sherry! Totally jealous you can go so often! I downloaded and read the Kindle sample of Diving over Lemons for free and plan to buy it now. :) I would love to go back and take my husband but that may be a while since right now he can only travel in the summer - and it might not be my first choice of location for June or July. :)
Yes, I like to go in March, as well. This past March, though, was the first time I went and the weather was uncooperative. :) It was cold, windy, and rainy most of the time. I didn't care. Seville is beautiful no matter the weather. I spend as much time there as possible. I was going about once a year, that turned into once every six months, and now I have just gotten back in March and want to go again. I wish I could convince my husband to spend a few months there a year with me. :)I've also read the Driving Over Lemons books and heartily recommend them, as well!!!!!
Neil, I am always looking for a good book so will look that one up right now. I had forgotten about uploading a photo last year. :) I think the nets stayed up for most of the summer for shade, if I remember correctly.
I did indeed. It was just full of motorcycle's, what was I supposed to think? Gwynn, I don't know if you have read the book, Driving over Lemons and A Parrot in the Pepper Tree by Chris Collins. It's about him buying a farm in Andalucía. Definitely worth reading.
Sherry, Seville is wonderful. I was there a year ago in March and the weather was amazing and it is such a relaxed, beautiful place. I can definitely recommend March as a good time to go! And Andalucia is cheaper than some other places, for sure. Neil has been, as well, and several others who comment here somewhat regularly. :) Neil, I was just remembering when this one was new and you commented, wondering what it was - other than a motorcycle parking lot. LOL!
Thanks also for the info about looking at the photos. I never even noticed that option! How cool.
Thanks, kindly, to both of you! It's lovely.I need to be there when one of these things is going on. I typically shop up in early March and miss all this stuff. Once I was there for the Christmas markets and that was fantastic.
I noticed it was your picture as well Gwynn, so thank you.
Well last year we thought it might be new apartments going up..... just kidding. :) Corpus Christi it is. Well done, Neil.
If you have a look at the photos Sherry you can see a pic of the tower from last years Corpus Christi, that's the event.
Thanks, Neil. I hope I don't miss it, whatever it is! :)
I saw it last year but I cant remember what the celebration was for. The scaffolding will be covered to look like a tower. Perhaps Gwynn can remember what the event was?
Does anyone know what they are currently building in the right hand corner, and what event they are preparing for as of May 8?
