The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

Orange Blossom Time

Normally when you arrive in Spain on the Costa Blanca you can smell a very distinctive warm musty smell which I am told is the dust.

However this time the wind must have been in the right direction and the conditions correct for a wonderful odour of orange blossom over the whole town. This is one of the plus points about Spain which attract me back to the place.

Orange and lemon groves abound on the banks of the Rio Segura - sadly some of these are being ripped up and replace by urbanisations and blocks of holiday flats..

Penguins - move your cursor and take them for a walk !!

Say it as it is ......

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

Look around !!!

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
