Rain and a Douro quiz

It's raining again, today. I can't beleive it. And of the next 10 days, only one is forecast to be dry. Where has our summer gone?

This time last year it was hot and sunny. Fiona and I went to the Douro for the Quinta de la Rosa centenary celebrations. Pictured is the boat ride we took down river, on a swelteringly hot day. Wish I was there now, actually.

See if you can recognize the two characters at the centre of this picture doing a bit of Quinta spotting. Click picture to get a bigger one.

Is the one on the left you and the one on the right Andrew Jefford?

You are right about Mr Jefford, wrong with the other.

Yes Luis. I know you were at the celebrations, but i don't remember you being on the train/boat excursion.

No, I missed the boat. Couldn't make it on time or something like that...

I'm hoping to go back to the Douro again in a couple of weeks!

Bit late in the year I know, but the lady on the right in yellow is my wife. I must have been below decks refuelling the glasses...
