6.4.14 Sunday. New Arrivals
Only 3 weeks to go until we return to the UK, so lots to do in the house to get ready for the rainy season. The humidity causes many things to go mouldy if they are not packed away in plastic bags, so today I started the job of putting away all curtains from the bedrooms not being used again before we leave. All the spare towels, sheets and blankets also need packing in plastic and putting away in our big bedding chest out of the harmful atmosphere. Steve was busy doing maintenance on some of the taps which have come loose over the last months and making sure that his vegetable plots in the garden were weeded and cleared of the last produce. Our Avocado tree has blossom on this year for the first time, so hopefully we will get fruit next year. Anne and Steve were due to arrive at 2.30 and so we got changed and went down to the airport to meet them, arriving just after the plane landed. The luggage stowed in the back of the truck we drove them to their hotel and waited on the terrace whilst they checked in and had a quick change in their room. We enjoyed a couple of drinks whilst we caught up on the news from home and collected our post which they had kindly brought out. We arranged to meet for dinner and returned home for a short rest and change before collecting them at their hotel. We walked next door to their hotel to try and contact Gill and Shaun who also arrived today, but had no luck, we must have missed them. We decided to take Anne and Steve to Cabanas, it was already dark when we arrived, so no seaview tonight, but we still enjoyed a drink and a meal before returning home.
