128 La Manga Pt 2

As we are not traveling at present and some days we just chill out and watch telly or plan our America trip, I will only put a date in where it is relevant.

Tuesday 20th Nov
I thought I would post a piccy of our camping plot. We have made the place as comfortable as possible and although the nights can be cold (we put a heater on)the days are by and large pleasant but chilly out of the sun. We are however, not experiencing the floods that the UK is having.
On the next photo you can see a blur just right of centre. This is a deep scratch that is on the lens. How it got there we do not know but it means the camera will need replacing.
Our humble abode.

Wednesday 21st Nov
Below is Dick, the guy that has made  "doing nothing and laziness into an art form". This is him as he always is when the sun is out. We may have our coats and jumpers on but Dick just sunbathes.
A familiar sight

We have kind of taken up tennis. That is the official name for the game that usually involves the bats that we were using, however that is where the similarity ends. We did a good job of setting these photos up though.


It took 4 takes to get this. I had to throw the ball and then take the photo !!

Thursday 22nd Nov
This says it all. Our next door neighbour Joe, has taken pity on Dicks rapidly deteriorating plot and realising that Dick is incapable (mentally, not physically) of doing it himself, has decided to sweep up.

 That night we went out for an Italian with Dick, John and Jackie. It was fantastic and only cost about £16 each.

Me, John, Jackie, Karen and Dick.

Saturday 24th Nov
The view from the bar at the end of the campsite.

Sunday 25th Nov
Today we decided to go to the beach at Callblanque, which is only 1/2 a mile south of us. It was a warm and beautiful day.
The water was clear and inviting.
 One thing that made us laugh was that the locals seemed to turn up and then decided as the weather was so nice, would go for a dip, without getting their clothes wet !

The views were interesting
We decided to sort of join them and went for a paddle.  It was surprisingly warm in the water.

Monday 26th Nov
We intended to go back for a swim today but after we got our act together it started to rain. Ho humm.

Tuesday 27th Nov
A Day planning for the USA. Well, I did, Karen played games all day !!
