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.

A lovely sunny day .. ..

A lovely sunny day here in England and warmth to match Spain ...

This unseasonal weather is expected to last for the next few days and then temperatures will drop to normal.

It is strange to sit in the garden in such sunny and warm weather and yet the trees are still to leaf.

It is not unusual to have snow at this time of the year so we'll just wait and see what is still in store for us.

Golden glow

From the darkness of our balcony the sun is shining on the building opposite and leaving it in a golden glow.

Here's the anchor - all I need now is the boat.

Evening time ..

Not many skies like this in the UK at the moment - apart from this evening lots of cloud about normally.

Not at all sure when we will get back to Spain - one worn out knee to be sorted first - perhaps !!

Not many photos left to load onto the Blog either - it's a poor do.
