Travels Of A Different Kind - Pewsey To Spain

Ten days since our last blog - have you missed us?!

We have been away as you may have guessed. Actually out of the country - our good friends invited us to test run their new apartment in Spain. So we went out with them last Friday and returned here on Wednesday.

The area we travelled to is called the Costa Calida in a region called Murcia. As yet a very undeveloped part of Spain. Polaris World (Jack Nicolas advertises them on the box) are there, as are a couple of other big developers - mainly around golf courses. Our friends apartment is in a block that is in a very Spanish village named San Cayetano and not at all a touristy part!

We visited a few places, enjoyed Spanish food and picked up the odd Spanish word!

Cabo de Palos where I paddled in the Med!

La Manga del Mar Menor - a finger of land between the Med and the Mar Menor (Inland sea) is in the background of the above and in this photo of John also taken at Cabo de Palas.

La Manga Golf Resort is where the rich and famous go for their golf! We passed the gates but being poor and infamous did not venture in!

This little cove reminded us a bit of Cornwall - apart from the palm trees and black sand!

We also took a train journey to Cartagena, which has quite a history.

The Roman amphitheatre and bombed cathedral are being restored - slowly!

We enjoyed the short trip although it was hotter in the UK than there! But as I do not do really hot it suited us and our activities. John says he is never going to have a Vesta paella again after tasting the real thing!
