We like Javea and Denia. Denia was the town we kept coming back to on our casa hunting expeditions and is now our local 'big smoke'. We took a friend up to Valencia airport last weekend and stopped for lunch in Xeraco. That's a nice town with an absolutely stunning beach, very Spanish, I don't think many Brits go there. We eventually found a nice (expensive) place for lunch - it was the San Juan festival and everywhere was booked and although I said to the boss we should take a picnic she didn't listen to me, nobody ever does.

I must admit I used to quite like Sarfend Pier, especially when I was recovering from an operation on my right elbow back in 1963. I would pay 7s 6d for a ticket that would cover the return train trip to the pierhead, lunch in the Dolphin restaurant (good quality home-cooked food) and the matinée performance in the Sundeck Theatre. Get down there at about 10.30 am, sit out in the sun and maybe read a book until lunchtime, have lunch and then watch the matinée, train back to shore and home. A day well spent, especially as I was on sick-pay at the time.

Two places I love to visit are Almería, in the province of the same name, and Gijón. Both are beautiful, with pleasant locals and great food, and each has lovely beaches /seasides. In addition, both offer some great, easy day trips.

One of my favorite sights in Almería is the Alcazaba https://www.turismodealmeria.org/en/...zaba-fortress/

In Gijón it's the the Atlantic Botanical Garden https://gijononline.org/relax-at-the...anical-garden/ (The photos do not do it justice at all!)

I'm getting all neuralgic - or is it nostalgic, those words always confuse me. 7s 6d was a lot of money back in the olden days! You could buy a house for that when I was alive. I remember when I used to think I was minted if I had a whole quid in my pocket, 7 or 8 beers, a packet of ciggies (stopped that disgusting habit 15 years ago, too late to prevent the heart attack, but what doesn't kill will get you next time) and the bus fare home. I remember finding a ten bob note when I was a nipper, it was like winning the lottery.

It was fecking mental that old imperial money, I tried telling my grand-daughters about it when we were playing Trivial Pursuit, they looked at me as if I was still tripping on acid (which use to be half a crown a go).
