The story of our adventure in Spain

In October 2002 we purchased a holiday flat in Guardamar on Spain's Costa Blanca - not far from Alicante and Torrevieja and we try to spend a good part of the year in Spain.

This blog hopefully will contain our thoughts and impressions of Spain - the good and the bad and lots and lots of photographs of not only Guardamar but the rest of Spain as we eventually get to explore it.

La Mata - Salt Lake

Here at La Mata is one of the two salt lakes in the Torrevieja area.

This one is complete with nature reserve, hides, walkways and a visitor centre

A pleasant place for bird watching ..

Looking across the roofs of Rojales towards the bay and Santa Pola.

A small inland town - we walk here from Guardamar along the banks of the rio Segura - one hour fifteen minutes and it can be warm in the summer !
