THURSDAY 5th November
A frustrating drive down to Stansted this morning in dull misty conditions. We decided to drive down cross country to Colsterworth, but it is a slow road and we were beset by slow traffic. To make matters worse there were holdups on the A1 and M11 with traffic queuing to get off at Peterborough and the A14 for Harwich and Felixstowe. However, we arrived at the airport nicely in time to have a coffee and browse the duty free before it was time to board the plane.
The flight went quickly although there was total cloud cover until well over Spain. The two national parks and lakes/reservoirs just before Seville looked interesting.
The bus journey into Seville was quick and straightforward and we were soon enjoying a beer and wine in San Eloy underneath one of the many heavily laden orange trees. While waiting for Beth we enjoyed pottering around and taking night photos of Las Setas and the Giralda. It was fantastic to meet up with Beth and head through the narrow winding streets to her small but very attractive flat for a meal of pasta and an early night.
