So you may be noticing that a whole week of the blog is being published at once. This is because I've had a lot of trouble with WiFi access in Spain. I am writing this from a cafe and my iPad says I have full connectivity but won't connect to the Internet. It is probably something I am not doing right but the irony is, apple help is of course online....
|Gum Trees on the beach!|
We figure it is because the sand here is more like dirt that eucalyptus trees are able to grow right on the beach. The beach is at San Pedro a little up the coast with a much more relaxed vibe than Marbella or Porto Banus. Exercise equipment was also a feature and Susan and I had a real workout, earning our lunch on the beach and a tough afternoon on the sun lounges.
Marbella old town with it's narrow streets and window flower boxes gave me a taste of actual Spain, even if our dinner was spoiled by a very loud English woman. The 'degustation' menu may have been a mistake, whilst the tomato bread and fish skewer were delicious, I can't see what the chef EVER thought was appealing about zucchini and tropical fruits in jelly, it is not often that I can't physically eat something but this was one such occasion.
