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.

Guardamar - Ingeniero Mira

Ingeniero Mira was the gentleman who many years ago decided that the pine forest should be planted in order to stop the sand blowing into the town centre.

His reward was to have a street named after him - Calle del Ingeniero Mira and tiled walls erected,  displaying the story of his achievements. 

The citizens of Guardamar have certainly benefited from the pine forest with it's welcome shade on a hot summer day.
