The Cadiz Coastline

With the coast set firmly in our sights we followed the route back towards Seville and then onwards down toward Jerez De La Frontera stopping on the way for fuel and supplies. We arrived in the city of Jerez around lunchtime and headed for the parking area (which as is often the case in cities…

The key saga continues!

After our initial 27 day wait for a replacement key to arrive the saga still continues.
