Just over another week has gone by since the last post and we have been pretty much doing the same old routine. A leisurely breakfast followed by Guitar, Ukulele practice, Languages, reading and swimming.
The weather has not been too good recently (wind & rain) so on the good days we have been getting out.
Last week Angela and I decided to go out for a walk over to Calblanque beach. It was nice and sunny but not too hot and we ended sat on the beach with a brew watching and listening to the ebb and flow of the tide. We then retraced our steps and headed back to the van for lunch. Total walk time was 3 hours.
After lunch we sat outside where I read and Angela continued with her knitting which is growing rapidly now. She is making a cardigan and is determined to be wearing it on our return to the UK which may be later than first planned but more on that later!
We went for the usual Tapa’s on Thursday with Geoff & Barbara which is always nice to have a good chat before heading back to the van for a cosy evening and a DVD.
Geoff and I went out again today but not on the bikes as the last 2 times I have injured myself and my ribs are still sore from last time. We decided to walk to The Lion’s Head in Calblanque Nature Park. I think I am right in saying that it has the highest point locally and according to Geoff’s GPS system the top is 1,116ft high. Nothing compared to the Lake’s or Scotland where we have been walking but still good for panoramic views of the area.
We were at the top within an hour and a half where we had a few pictures taken, a quick bite to eat and a brew before setting back off for an afternoon in the sun as the forecast for next week is wet
Geoff has indicated that he would like to walk it again a few times before leaving, as would I with him again and with Angela. There is also a longer circular walk around the Lion’s Head so we may look into doing that also sometime soon.
Earlier on this week we had some very sad news that the lovely Lucy (as in Hamish & Lucy) had departed for rainbow bridge where she is now running free with all of the other doggies there.
Because of this and other things Al & Isabel are thinking of coming over to stay here at La Manga so we are looking into the possibility of staying away for longer. We need just need to sort our insurance out as we were due back in the UK on the 28th January……………..fingers crossed as it would be great to see them again
Pictures to follow as internet too slow tonight !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
