Day 13, Friday

It's looking better Mrs Db, both ferries are running



It's a beach day for us and the green flag is flying lol



The rows of chairs are going out again



however, Dorada beach has taken a battering as well down one end



clearly there has been sand washed away at the tide end





the rest of the lower part of the beach was more undulating and had shells and fine shingle that was not there before but it will level out

but in general not too bad at all





but the sea is now calm again



lunch was at Barney's again for one of his quality burgers lol



The rest of the afternoon was spent on the beach, and when we returned in the evening, we were given the sunsets of all sunset lol











they just kept coming





This evening we were going back to Casale Franco's for another pizza





free starter



I perhaps should have had something different for the forum but sorry, this pizza is so nice I was going to have a second one lol



Mrs Db helps out though with the Boscalola, a chicken and parma ham dish which she said was delicious, which we were told by the lady was one of the most popular dishes ordered



and we ended with being given a nice lemon liqueur

Lovely evening

which ended with a free full 5 minute firework display from our balcony with top quality fireworks



but difficult to photograph as they are gone before the picture is taken lol



I enquired the next morning for the reason and was told that if a restaurant reaches a target in the week they give a firework display

End od Day 13

Day 14, Saturday

This was an easy one, it was a nice day but a bit windy, we attempted to stay around the pool area and great lumps of cloud kept coming over making it chilly



so I popped across the marina to check where the cloud was coming from as one minute it looked as if we were due for a clear patch but the clouds merged together







lunch was a tuna bagette each in the apartment bar, nice it was lol



followed by a feast of goals in the Man City v Arsenal match lol



I then went to Waxs bar to see all the screens of football and chattted to an ex pat who had lived here for 14 years, do you enjoy it here, I asked, "Oh, yes, the weather is great, no winters here. The only thing he missed was a good debate on the England.

Soon it was evening , no more sunsets I'm afraid, will the moon do lol



for our last meal we decided to go to Cervantes where we both had the flambe steaks in Cervantes sauce which turned out delicous




as we walked back to our apartment, the lava was alight on top of the hotel volcan



End of day 14

Are you sure you only went for 2 weeks, as you have crammed in so much? Thumsup Are you trying to take over from The Highlander in your reviews as well mate?  wink You certainly ate well the pair of you, the food looks fantastic.  Eat

Sunset photos fantastic. Repped. Btw, those fireworks used to go off every evening at 9pm when we were there. Always wondered why.

Day 15, Sunday going home  pale 

Well I woke up at 7am,"listen very carefully I will do this only once" as I sped off to catch the sun




I was too early but someone had opened the pirate tower's door



and here it comes...HERE IT Comes lol









Anyway, back to the apartment, we were going to have breakfast out, which we ended up in Lani's as the only one open. Their bacon is different at breakfast time, which also included toast and marmalade



The Soloman Lew boat was leaving as well as us, who was on the boat I asked the waitress, "a famous artist", she replied. Well that could be Van Gogh or even Rod Stewart lol but didn't see any ears floating in the marina



Soon it was time for the airport and we were picked up on time



There were long queues at the check in desks, as three flights were using the same desks but I picked the right queue which went down quickest of all , soon we were on the plane



and that exit door was looking smaller, if needed, should Mrs Db go out first and pull me through, or should I be kicked out by Mrs Db if I get stuck



Captain wants to speak to you Delboy

"I hear you have extra leg room Delboy, would you like to sit with me", no but thanks captain I better sit Mrs Db, she hasn't seen much of me this holiday lol



We then reflected on another nice holiday despite the weather not as good as last year



Hope you enoyed our virtual holiday as much as we did lol

You can see you've got a suntan though Del, from the shot on the plane home that shows your arm with the watch on.
Another rep from me, an enjoyable read.









Although I reckon there was a pic of a shop you missed in the Avenida de Canarias lol!
