Week 32: the road to Relleu and Alicante vignettes

Filed under: — Administrator @ 06:08

The hot summer continues. My time was spent working and the weekend cycling, as usual.

The cat spent the week just about the same way he spent the previous week:

The golf course cats are still there, too. I usually do not photograph them when they are eating the food I leave for them, since I want them to eat in peace, but this one did not seem to mind:

I continued to explore the angles and reflections of the new office building where I work:

We have recently “discovered” another vegan restaurant in Alicante. It is in a low-rent neighbourhood that nevertheless contains some interesting architecture:

My daughter and her friends go to a bar in the neighbourhood, one of the ubiquitous Irish pubs seen all over the world. This one is called St James. We went there one evening, and much to my delight, it turned out to have a very decent beer selection, including Mort Subite, my daughter’s favourite “girlie beer”:

The management team of our office (of which I am a part, kind of) went out for a pre-vacation lunch at one of our usual restaurants near the office, Capricho de Raquel. One of the nicest things about this restaurant is the wine cellar, which is not a cellar but a climate-controlled, walk-in glass enclosure so that the wine is visible in all its glory:

The remaining six images are from my weekend cycling in the mountains. They are from the town of Relleu, almost exactly 35 km from my home and the starting point for a couple of gruelling and interesting climbs.

Even though it was around 10:30 in the morning, it was already quite hot, and there were a lot more people taking refreshments at the local café than walking around the market stalls:

A stop to answer the call of nature, in glorious surroundings:
