Sunrise

We had a sunny final week at Los Alcázares; it got a little busier as a few Spanish pitched up for the Easter holidays.

We spotted these Andalusians trotting through the shallows on the way to coffee one morning (us, not the horses).

We said goodbye to Mike and Marilyn who had to set off home a few days earlier than planned…storm Katie had scuppered their booked Bay of Biscay crossing so they had to drive up through France for the tunnel. The couple on the right are Anne and Gerda, two friends from Holland.
Colin is watching Marilyn, his new best friend, who had been slipping him biscuits.

This is Luca, a Podenco, one of four dogs rescued by Jan and Frank, who we met on the beach at Mar Menor. We shared a great day with them sampling the tapas at La Encarnacion.

Los Alcázares celebrates Easter in a big way, with events that also commemorate an invasion by North African pirates several hundred years ago..the ‘Berber Incursions…’

There is an Easter market with loads of medieval themed stalls packing the narrow streets. We bought some soap and beeswax skin cream from this lady.

    Home… but not for long, I think … At least I hope you keep on blogging, love your travels! Have a safe trip in France!

    Hi Peter. I’ve been following your latest trip with great interest (and envy!) and resolved to spend time away next winter too. However, I have queries which I’d like to get your thoughts on please. I’m not sure if you’re home yet – there is no urgency to this. My email address is elanhomer@gmail.com. When you’ve recovered from your trip and have time, could you send me yours please. Thanks. Elan
