2/3 – Friends, Food, Wine and Pools!

March 4, 2007 | 1 comment | Blog
This evening our friends from La Marina, Paul and Jackie came around for a meal, Liesl cooked her ‘famous’ Spanish chicken and I made baked Alaska for desert, it was a great night and had been a very warm day so although we didn’t have to resort to turning on the air conditioning, it was warm enough to have the ceiling fans on for most of the night – not bad for March!

We had a look at the lunar eclipse, but although the sky was perfectly clear, to be honest I couldn’t see what all the fuss was about – pretty under whelmed with the event really – perhaps the amount of wine that I had drunk was having an effect on my ability to see properly.
Towards the end of the evening Paul offered an invite to his house on Sunday, if the weather was again good, to have a dip in the pool, I accepted, the girls thought we were both mad.

Needless to say Sunday was another scorcher and when we had walked Hetty (this time on La Marina beach for a change), we drove over to Paul and Jackie’s villa and Paul and I jumped into the pool, it was fantastic; I wouldn’t say that it was warm by any stretch of the imagination, but it was certainly acceptable, again, not bad for March!

This evening, Sunday, we are going to go down to the Sunset Bar to attempt to speak some more in Spanish, my friend Xavi, pronounced Shabi, is going to come down and chat as well – he writes the web site for our urbanisation http://www.carabassi.net/granalacant
