So enjoying having Rebecca and Antoni here
Just need to slow the clock down as the week is disappearing so fast
A couple of days visiting the beach before the weather broke. The sea is at its warmest now and although it was very windy it was pleasant to swim.
Antoni took his go pro into the sea and filmed all the fish darting about, including some rather large ones
He had bought a super duper snorkel mask which enabled him to really explore the sea bed
whilst doing so he found a wallet, wedged between two rocks
Someone had obviously forgotten to empty their pockets before swimming
Amongst the contents was a work pass so he intends to ring the company asking to speak to the person, hopefully being able to return his property.
Its always difficult to keep personal things safe on the beach, unless one of the party always stays with the bags, but we have some very good waterproof pouches which hang around the neck, big enough to keep keys, cards money and even the phone safe.
Unfortunately, after weeks of high temps and blazing sunshine, the weather broke on Thursday and we have had gota fria (cold drop) storms, where the cold air meets with warm and the warm sea.
We have had absolute downpours, but because we are between two mountain ranges, we have been saved from the awful destruction of some of our nearby towns and villages.
Even Denia, about 45 minutes away, where we were on Wednesday, was hit by a tornado, roads were like rivers with cars being tossed around and carried away in the torrential rain, just like toys.
Anyone unlucky enough to have left their cars in the underground car parks they favour here, would have seen them completely ruined.
Further south towards Alicante and Murcia have been hit hard.
The same with north, Valencia area took a hammering. That region has quite high rainfall anyway which the orange groves and rice fields love.
But it hasn´t diminished the joy of having Rebecca here, chatting every day on the phone doesn´t come anywhere near being face to face and collecting lots of huggles, chatting and sharing and just doing everyday tasks together.
They are taking the opportunity to catch up with some friends to, so the next few days will be busy.
