Trip to Spain ~ June 2007

In June I got away from the rain for a while and enjoyed a great couple of weeks in Spain.  The fun started outside Alicante airport where the temperature was 29C, and it took me while to recognise that bright light in the sky........the sun!!  I love palm trees and dusty roads, so I rushed out to cross my palm and discovered it was 29.5C.

              

The next stop was, of course, a view from the 13th floor....Alicante from Saint Barbara On The Hill, where the temperature was 30C.  I threatened to jump.....if only to escape the attacking birds!  Still hot!

              

Hay fever's dream, a rose by any other name!  Ole!!  Cheers!!  They kept the bartender under the floor in the cellar....air conditioning in the bar!

              

Soft music, low lights, cool breeze, aaah!  I met this group at the restaurant.  They did flamenco dancing and singing and were really good.  I told them I'd put them on my website and I hope they'll get on MySpace too.

              

The highlight of the trip was meeting Amadeo, il perro (the dog!).  Dean, my best friend, had one of these when we were about 8 years old in California, his name was Chief.  Amadeo took time getting ready for his close up.  He does a great 'Amadeo Aunt' where if you have any problems he will help you solve them.  One bark is yes, two for no, and three when he has to think about it.  I'll get his address and let you know how to contact him.

              

And talking about Dean reminds me.....here we are at his wedding in nineteen sixty something, and celebrating our birthdays together a long, long time ago!  That's me with the curls, and Dean to my left.  It's a real shame I haven't got any photos of Chief.

              

We had a really excellent time in Spain.....wish you could have been there.  Until the next time, adios amigos!
