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.

May 28th 1588

This day - May 28th 1588 - the ill fated Spanish Armada with 130 ships and 30,000 men set sail from Lisbon heading for the English Channel ( it would take until May 30th for all the ships to leave port).

The were later to suffer a heavy defeat by Sir. Francis Drake and the fleet scattered and destroyed.

And thus England saved from invasion ..... again !!
