Week 45: on 2 wheels and on foot

Filed under: — Administrator @ 21:39

The first half of this week’s PAW consists of images taken during my more or less daily cycling, while the second half are the “slices of life” that I show from time to time.

Main
Early morning view in El Campello:
P1000750


Alternates
:

Alternate 1
It may be winter,but the campers are still here:
P1000745

Alternate 2
Still sleeping, apparently:
P1000747

Alternate 3
A bit further inland, I came across some kind of construction site that is used by local off-road bikers:
P1000755

Alternate 4
On the way up:
P1000761

Alternate 5
Bull-shaped billboards like this one are scattered along Spanish motorways. I suppose tourists driving down like to see them, but personally I am pleased when I see one that has been overturned by the wind. I think bullfighting is barbaric and should be banned, as is likely to happen in Cataluña. This is one of those bulls near the AP7 motorway in El Campello:
P1000779

Alternate 6
The back side of the bull, illuminated by the setting sun:
P1000778

Alternate 7
Boat detail, El Campello harbour:
P1000799

Alternate 8
The vehicle that gets me to the places shown in the preceding pictures:
P1000795

Alternate 9
Broken-down motorbike, on the street where I live:
L1008627

Alternate 10
Tuesday night we had yet another wine tasting at the office. This is the representative of the 4 Kilos bodega in Mallorca talking about their wines:
L1008633

Alternate 11
Doing research:
L1008636

Alternate 12
After the wine tasting, we eat some tapas:
L1008650

Alternate 13
Breakfast in a café in the centre of Alicante:
L1008622

Alternate 14
Wednesday evening I went to Linda’s Bar to watch the Ireland-France World Cup qualifyer. Some concerned Irish supporters:
L1008662

Alternate 15
France ended up winning 1-0 in Dublin. But the Irish created lots of chances, sadly all resulting in sentiments like this–“how could they miss that!!”:
L1008663

  1. Nice series as always. Yes the campers are everywhere. Here is a picture from a couple of weeks ago from Assateague Island, Maryland. (the coffee cup outside is proof that I am up and about 😉 We were hoping that the “wild” horses would come to our campsite, but alas they were other places on the island.
