As we were foretold, the tourist from the cooler climes plus a few Spanish have arrived. We reckon there must have been at least 50 ... so, as you can see it was packed to capacity ...
We had a walk with the dogs along the prom ... when we discovered the prom actually just stops. Dead end. So we turned back, as the doggies were knackered in the heat, and took them back to the nice cool apartment.
As we were hot ourselves we took ourselves down to the beach for a swim and a well deserved lie down(!) in the sun.
In the evening, I went down to the local pub (The Emerald Isle) to watch El Clasico, which isn't a Spanish opera ... it's a football match between Real Madrid and Barcelona. After three pints of Guinness I staggered back to the flat to find El having her big Saturday night in with Dr Who and the X Factor!
Now for anyone who feels like you would like to escape the chill of the English winter for a few weeks or a few months, here are the details of our apartment ...
and this is the main webpage ... http://emeraldholidays.net/
Our friendly apartment landlord has apartments from €350 per month plus bills or he allows big discounts on monthly lets from September to May. It's a lovely spot, with just a few mins walk down to the beach front where there are loads of cafes and restaurants and, of course, the lovely, deserted beach!
The landlords name is Pat, mention that you read about his apartments on our blog and he will give you a good discount for sure.
