Earlier in the week we again visited the restaurant at San Miguel for their Menu of the Day. I enjoyed salmon and avocado salad, followed by pork fillet with vegetables and completed the meal with profiterole cake and a glass of apple juice [could have had half a bottle of wine, but I do not drink], all for 9 euros. [£8.50]
Chris walked home the 4 miles along the canal!!
A couple of evenings have been spent with our friends playing cards, always a nice way to spend the evening. Plus a visit to San Javier to see a few friends and raid the Chino Bazaar shop for candles and craft items followed by a quick lunch at Burger King in La Zenia watching a singer perform in at least three languages was very nice.
At home I drink Barley Cup, a coffee substitute, but the jar I brought with me is almost empty so I translated the contents into Spanish and went on a Barley Cup hunt. A Health Food shop said she could get me a jar for 12 euros, no way would I spend that much! However a visit to a local Mercadona grocery store and BINGO we found it for 1.50euros, that's about £1.30. I pay £4 a jar at home, so today I bought 12 jars to take home with me, good job we came by car.
|Great shop found in Torrevieja along the pedestrian walk way|
|Torrevieja sea front, love the concrete seats that have built looking out to sea.|
Not sure if you can see the cats, but there were four cats sunbathing near the wall
that did not even move when Chris walked out for the picture.
|A walk around the area this morning [Thursday] and we spotted this bird,|
looks like a road runner but I don't really know what it is.
