A Stranger in Town ..
An Englishman in Spain - thoughts and impressions.
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.
More views from and of the South Park in Guardamar.
Above - looking out towards the sea . This area is awash with bright flowers in the spring.
In the background of this picture is Guardamar Hill with the cranes - this area is earmarked for quite a lot of new property but with the economic slump the construction activity here has come to a virtual standstill.
The view from the South Park looking into the centre of Guardamar.
Until a recently sand dunes with a few trees solely used by dog walkers - this area has been improved with walkways, lighting , benches and flower beds. A good example of what can be done on a limited budget to improve the area.
