Week 21: cycling, wine and golf

Filed under: — Administrator @ 21:09

It was another peaceful week of cycling, working, walking Cheeta and playing golf with my wife.

On Sunday morning I cycled to Tibi and bought some goat cheese from Lili. Reaching her shop involves some truly brutal climbs, so a break for a chat with her is most welcome. And the cheese she makes is delicious:

Afterwards, I had a Coke in a bar on Tibi’s main street (such as it is). A group of motorcycles were about to leave, and the locals were very interested in the people and their magnificent machines:

We had our monthly wine tasting at the office. The presenter, David Doñate, was very knowledgeable and entertaining at the same time. The theme of the tasting was the Duero river, from its source in northern Spain to its mouth in Portugal:

But then noon arrives and since it is the last Friday of May, a familiar scene unfolds. The drinks and snacks are being set up:

On Saturday, my wife and I played 9 holes on our golf course. Like most of the other golfers, my wife has fanciful coverings for her clubs:
