So it was time to head southwards following the coastal road. It was a day of blue skies, fluffy clouds, no map and my Spanish seriously negligible but with a beautiful brand new Seat Ibiza as my mode of transport and a sense of adventure within what could be better? I sauntered down the road soaking up the pretty coastline before stopping in on Los Alcazares. And I am glad that I did. What a quaint little place.
I wandered along the boardwalk, taking note of the reconstruction of the beach (the digger was a bit of a give away :) and through the streets and alleyways then headed to the Marina for a spot of lunch.
I headed inland a little to explore the agricultural lands but especially the old windmills. Old relics basking in the sun and really quite beautiful to photograph. I came across one or two rather, how shall we say it…LARGE guard dogs in the process! And all of a sandy coloured variety which helped them BLEND with their surroundings naturally!!! Note to self…scarey dogs make for a fast heart rate!
and the Valencian region is famous for it’s oranges and lemons and I couldn’t resist taking a few shots of them. They add such colour to the landscape and such juiciness to your breakfast bowl or zing to your g&t :)
And another beautiful little find was La Union where I climbed to the highest point alongside the railway to get these shots. So there you have it, that’s part 2. Part 3 coming in the morning and it’s all about the walled city of Cartagena, it’s marine archaeology, museums and around it’s docks. Whilst part 4 takes us up to the heights of the city and back in time. Ah, I love blogging :) Until then, have a lovely evening wherever you are whatever you are doing! It’s g&t time here. Jacqui x
