Week 47: Deserted beaches

Filed under: — Administrator @ 06:24

Last week started out stormy and even rainy. It almost made me feel like I was back in the Netherlands, except that it was warmer and the rain did not last more than one evening. But I start off with a few images from Albufereta beach, taken early Saturday morning.

Main
Surf, sand and stone:
3910


The alternates
:

Alternate 1
Same scene as the main image:
3908

Alternate 2
Sand and surf:
3907

Alternate 3
The only presence on the beach this morning:
3904

The next two alternates are from a rare rainy evening, both taken near Puerta del Mar in the centre of Alicante.

Alternate 4
Umbrellas are a rare sight here:
3895

Alternate 5
One of my favourite watering holes–but no sitting outside tonight:
3898

The remaining images are from an area south of Alicante, called Arenales del Sol. It is basically a bunch of mainly apartment buildings and is a British enclave. Not very interesting, except that I was looking for a bar where I could watch the Liverpool-Newcastle game.

Alternate 6
View of Alicante across a stormy bay:
3931

Alternate 7
But a windy day is good for some people:
3928

Alternate 8
I found my bar. The beer was good, the Liverpool game was on, and the landlady was friendly:
3932

Alternate 9
She also had a sense of humour. She had personally selected this sign for her bar:
3935

  1. Very nice, especially Alternate 2. I like the bar sign. It is like the country and western song, “I’ve never gone to bed with an ugly women, but I have woken up with some”.
