Constitution Day

At last the winds are from the south, Africa and they are warm! Yesterday was a national holiday here, Constitution Day, so we took MIL to Calpe for lunch. It was extremely busy the spanish are very family orientated and all get together for these occasions. After a stroll to the beach we had a wonderful fish lunch with such variety. MIL was so surprised at having to remove her cardi as she was so warm and couldn't believe standing on the beach in 20c in December. The temperatures drop quite dramitically around 4pm when everyone dons their coats, but a lovely day.

This is the Ifach, it quite dominates the skyline for miles around. There is a path winding its way up the rock, then it disappears inside to emerge on the other side. DD and DS have climbed this, but I believe its not for the faint hearted, even if the views are stunning once you reach the top.


  1. Great you are having some wonderful weather.... the beach looks lovely. Ifach looks amazing - I'd love to go up but will wait for the cable care to be installed!

  2. Isn´t this weather amazing - almost back into summer wear :) Great pics, and I´m sure your MIL is enjoying her visit.
    Hope to catch up properly in the New Year - time seems to have flown past since we met.

  3. I'd be looking up from the bottom too - LOL.
