I was woken at 4 am and we drove without incident to Stanstead I had a beer in the new wetherspoons. The easyjet flight was fine and getting through customs at Bilbao was very quick especially with no luggage we picked up a white estate car which Verena drove to decathlon where we picked up a paddle and some neoprene shoes for canoeing. We then headed back to the house where we found Ben and Chris who should have been at the arctic. I went for a quick cycle and found a portal in Polientes then had a go at the ivy on the wall and snapping up the wood from John's store. It was then time for Johns birthday bbq I helped a bit and played the bbq playlist. Ben and chris had put up decorations and had a pinata. The bbq was good and we stayed up quite late. I stayed up later and watched the telly.
We were a bit late in starting I went into Polientes with Verena and hacked a portal. Ben was finally recovered enough and we went to the lake. I ran around for about 5 km but didn't go in the water, I finished my book and then we went to the bar for an ice cream and a beer. Back then and we had a drink at the bar in Polientes which was quite busy. It started to rain and I managed to clear a few more vines but had to abandon when it was lightening. In the evening we drove to the town near to the reservoir. There was a festival going on and it was tricky to park. We found the restaurant which did immense steaks I had one with cheese sauce that came on a hot stone but was already cooked the others cooked theirs on the hot stones. I had enough room left to fit in dessert. Afterwards we watched the disco in the square but it had started to drizzle a bit. By the time we got back it was nearly 1pm and Ben and Chris had to leave early in the morning.
It was a bit cooler and didn't look good weather for taking out the titanic. I cycled into polientes after taking down the last of the vines I came back for a bit of wood chopping then ran to the observatory which was a portal about 11km. Then watched some of sharknado. We stayed in and ate outside under the new garden heater.
We got up at a reasonable time I need to do quite a bit of tidying up and putting out of the beer bottles. We also went for a bit of a walk to a nearby Village where I tried to set up a portal for the church the weather was quite nice. After a nice lunch we got in the car and drove to the airport unfortunately when we got there the plane was a little bit delayed requiring quite a bit of rushing when I got back to London, just missed the train but caught the last tube.
