When people say “Happy Christmas” to each other, it has a traditional meaning. Family and friends gathered together, a Christmas tree in the corner, lots of presents, silly games, and general good fun. Here in Spain is much the same, except there´s an added bonus to take into consideration, an extra layer of fun provided…… Continue reading Life Is A Beach
Yes, the Christmas Day beach party is on! This is how it looked during the storm just six days ago. Top photo courtesy of un amigo. This is how it looked yesterday. What an amazing job in such a short space of time! Even the beach bar was saved / reconstructed. So the Christmas menu…… Continue reading Sunshine, Sand, Sea, And Champagne
These Halloween Howlers come to you after the event itself simply because three days later and three parties later I’m still knackered. Must be getting old, ha! Last year we spent the day down at the Shopping Mall along with hundreds of scary apparitions. We were rather conservative this year considering Halloween lasts four nights.…… Continue reading Halloween Howlers Unlimited
Dave´s birthday blog post. Good grief it was a week ago? October 1st, and what a night! CAUTION: Romantic photos on display. Aside from the birthday itself, day out, meal out, (as per norm on a regular basis) nothing planned, there´s no such thing. Yet it ended up with ten of us boogying on down…… Continue reading The Belated Birthday Blog Post
We’ve got a HUGE choice of three bars and two restaurants within a mile of here. We prefer the Spanish bar because it’s more human friendly than the one next door, and it’s where all our pals go.

This card in particular totally summarises the epitome of life in Spain: In case the…… Continue reading Happy Birthday To My Darling David! Only 103 Years Old Today!
We spent a very pleasant (quiet) birthday day out wandering round a charming little town further inland. Then, home and yesterday´s photo shoot. Later on we walked down to the Tapas restaurant just over a mile away from here. There it sits, all tucked away and almost out of sight, yet it´s very popular. Spanish…… Continue reading My Birthday Part Two, Getting Very Silly Indeed
It was my birthday today, so we did a photo shoot. However, the first photo here was taken in 2011 in the UK. It was freezing cold and I was driving the big boat we lived on. I remember that day well, it was a turning point (excuse pun) for us both. Determined to have…… Continue reading My Birthday Part One, Not Bad For 54?
Us… CHEERS, complete with Christmas hats bunged on our heads by someone else… Gate crashing with the Belgium Father Christmas gang, they must’ve been roasting hot in those costumes…! Photo story: Heth by the Med lost in relaxed MEDitation, amidst the gentle lapping sound of the waves… Noticed there was a camera pointing at me……… Continue reading Christmas Day At The Beach Part Two
