So we start is walk at the far end of Levante Beach





[/url

[url=http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=4668&u=15431294]








a water skiing cable which runs a pulley in a triange and skiers hang on



one of the side streets going up to the back of town



continuing on the path which is nice a flat







so now I start to get one or two bar prices on the front





quite a few people doing this walk today, probably with the cloud not too much else to do if you are not AI



on the left here, is one of five sand displays, IMO didn't think this was near the quality of the other four but the Aztec scene





but continuing on



over on the right was a bit of green with a shepherd and his flock



a Pinnochio restaurant



no beds being taken up











A group of keep fits, probably trying to keep the food off their tums but it don't usually work lol



and then the sand display of all displays, it could have been the forum meet up







anyway continuing on





all sunbeds were 4 euro's each and the parasol also 4 euro's, so 12 euro's for two beds and a parasol and you have to be off them by 6pm





starting to pick some of the prices now





another sand display of a magic castle which even had two little working fountains in it











Then it was Merlin and his Dragon this was just a pile of rough sand by the end of the week, not sure whether the guy had packed up or it was vandalised but they have to move on at sometime I guess



more prices















and of course Burger king



as one starts to get near the small peninsular between the two beaches the Levente beach starts to narrow



and the last of the five displays that we saw













we then went and walked around the old town bit I do have photos but we then came out onto this peninsular



and liked the look of his cafe overlooking the harbour



then we went down some stairs to walk down the prom to the town



There was a crowd gathering which turned out to be a local choir singing



I noticed the exchange rate seemed to be good, as Thomas Cook only gave me 113, four days earlier at home, I didn't use them so up to you if you do



I saw a sightseeing bus but not sure what they charge



so passing the choir again, I wanted to recreate the picture of 43 years ago



So I worked out it was just down here



so here is the picture again



and here is now, 43 years later, well as you can see not much has changed, well i've got a little fatter and perhaps a little older, all the background buildings have gone, the sunbeds are different but there's still sand there. With more warped sense of humour I was going to do this pic later in the week with a knotted hanky and an over the top Delboy cocktail but my bug put pay to it happening





we then had a coffee and a beer in that cafe with the view and bill was 5.60 euros





and the visited the bagoda on the peninsular but I recreated the walk under better conditions on the Friday which is yet to come

The bit where you say then we went down some stairs to walk down the prom to the town just along that road near the bus stop is a bar, I cannot remember its name but its one of two from the same person, it sells the cheapest beer in the world, I cannot remember the name but sure when Graham comes on he will tell us.
