Filed under: — Administrator @ 06:19

Just a quiet week of work and cycling.

I started the week with the usual cycling in the mountains during the weekend. Busot’s colourful houses look particularly nice when the mountains in the background are hazy and blueish:

The almond trees are a riot of flowers right now:

The lemon tree in our garden is yielding well this spring, with the lemons the size of oranges:

On Sunday I cycled up to the Puerto de la Carrasqueta. It was a very windy day but it was sunny and there were lots of motorcycles at Venta Teresa:

At the mountain pass, there was a group of people touring Spain on Vespa scooters:

They had a support van following them, with the driver giving out some kind of route sheets, and presumably carrying spare parts and so on. They seemed to be having a very good time:

The weekend was marked by some interesting clouds. Here in the mountains:

During the week, I went for lunch in the centre. Behind the Mercado Central I saw what is a relatively rare sight in Alicante, a group of tourists with a guide, explaining (in English) the history behind the memorial to the Civil War victims on which they are standing:

Saturday was the first anniversary of the death of our beloved kitty Taco. We went to the pet memorial tree in the dog park:

That evening, we were invited for dinner at some friends’ nearby. They have a very cute dog who spent most of the evening hanging around, hoping for accidents with the food. His tail just kept moving, as can be seen here:

The table was low, but for a dachshund it was still tall, and anyway, his begging was not overly aggressive:

And thus ended a quiet week.
