Week 03: Out and about

Filed under: — Administrator @ 14:39

My friend Lars was still here, until Tuesday, so we spent the first part of the week out and about, cycling, taking pictures, cooking and drinking beer. Those are the activities we always enjoy doing together. The pictures I show this week are mostly the product of those days.

Morning view from my office. The apartment buildings form the communities of Urbanova and Gran Alacant, with lots of British residents. Behind the peninsula is the town of Santa Pola.

Alternate 9
Saturday afternoon on the beach in El Campello. It is winter, so nobody is bathing, but the beach is still being used by local residents:

  1. Enjoyed them all very much especially the first two; but, really all; I like to see how people in other societies live. No need to acknowledge my remarks 🙂
