Javea then and now

My Title for this page was simply intended to make it clear that I intended to return to add some text but when I opened it now, it seemed apt - so it is staying!

Javea is under construction - if not destruction.

When we first went to spend a few weeks winter in Javea after we retired there were small orange farms within 5 minutes walk of this beach.

Now the construction of new developments seems to be going on everywhere you look and the character of the town is rather different. Even the climate seems to have changed so after a rather cold time of it on our last visit we decided to have a "holiday" from Javea.

I think we will go back one day because of the good memories we have of the town and the area and some of the people we have met there.

Spring in Spain

February and March can be lovely months to visit this part of Spain. There are fewer people about but some facilities are either closed for the winter or open shorter hours.

But the blossoms of the fruit trees and the oranges make a colourful sight as you drive through the country.

    Ah, sometimes things are best left in your memory! Luckily I have never been "drawn" by Spain although I would love to visit Toledo. Nice to hear from you.

    Another interesting place to dream about. That promenade looks quite similar to one we have here in Manly, with the palm trees. The 'Golden Days' pass is a great idea. More hotels should make this available. Nice pictures, Barbara.
