Our final couple of weeks in Spain have been spent enjoying the sun, exercising, playing our musical instruments, spending time with friends and generally enjoying ourselves.
One beautifully sunny day we visited the lighthouse at Cabo de Palos with our friends Al and Isabel. It was such a lovely day, with the reflection of the sun bouncing off the sea giving a wonderful backdrop to the coastline.
Here you are able to see the different minerals in the soil due to the coastal erosion, with the colours ranging from emerald green, to bright oranges and reds all the way through to black. With the warmth from the sun heating our backs we wandered back to the harbour with Hamish too and went for coffee and a snack at Busquets.
Two nights before we left to head back to England we all went for dinner at an Italian restaurant in Los Belones, called Via Romana. The atmosphere was wonderful and we were greeted warmly and shown to a table even though we had not booked. It quickly became apparent that we were very lucky to have got a table as people kept arriving all through the evening.
Their reputation must be very good as we noticed all nationalities eating. The English tended to arrive early evening (as we did) with the Spanish customers coming in later around 10pm. We had a lovely evening, chatting about each other’s plans for this year.
Our last day on site was spent visiting more friends and stowing the ‘van ready for tomorrow. We’ve made a date with Geoff and Barbara to meet them later this year in Germany at a Christmas market, and we shall see Dick and Jo next year – same place, same time!
