26 Oct 2012 – Madrid

Our last morning was to be spent in Madrid.   We left the hotel at 9am a large traffic jam resulted in the expected half hour journey taking at least twice that long.   This in turn delayed our planned departure time.

We had about three hours in Madrid and we had to choose between The Prado and The Retiro Park.   Faced with the rest of the day on the coach, we preferred a walk in the open.
It was another grey day, but the sun did shine as we reached the boat lake where we had lunch

These two were kind enough to let us share their t able, providing we fed them of course
Then back to the coach and our six hour drive back to the Costa Blanca.   We enjoyed our holiday, particularly Segovia and Toledo.   We were sorry that Salamanca did not live up to our memories of our two previous visits.  And the weather during the latter part of the week did not help, though we were very fortunate that it did not rain when we were off the coach.
