Week 10: a week at home

Filed under: — Administrator @ 06:20

A week between trips, spent working and cycling at home in Alicante, and not taking that many pictures. The weather was typical early March, with a mix of rain and sunny 20+ degree days. Many of the images were taken while cycling.

I happened upon the Moros y Cristianos in Aigües. I like these events in the small towns. They are totally authentic community affairs, in contrast to big commercialized events in bigger cities:

As I do almost every weekend, I stopped by the pet memorial tree in the dog park, where both Cheeta and Taco are commemorated. I usually sit on a bench, perhaps shed a tear for my beloved pets, and go on. This time, there were others too:

An unusual sight–a couple were having their pre-wedding photos taken in the dog park:

On Saturday night, I went to the centre to have a drink at the Little Duke with my wife and a visiting bridge pro and his wife. We sat outside, some people sat inside:

The advantage of sitting outside is that one can watch the human traffic, whether the other bar patrons:

On Sunday morning I went to the mercadillo in Playa Muchavista to buy some fresh herbs I needed for dinner, and of course to look around with my camera:

It is common for markets in Spain, whether indoors or outdoors, to have a bar where the shoppers can relax before or after their shopping:

And then it was back to work, and business trips to Paris and Brussels in the following weeks. So this week was a quiet interlude.
