Day 84: Beach West of Malaga (Drive)
B.J. doesn't let the truth ruin a good story. What follows is the truth.
Sometimes you have an itch that has to be scratched! Well Benidorm become an itch for me. Firstly as a consequence of my earlier cycle ride when I'd seen some interesting buildings, which I wished to get a second closer look at; and, secondly, whilst in Denia, I spoke to an English couple who said how much they regularly enjoyed visiting the old town of Benidorm. My interest was piqued!
So before moving on towards Alicante, I decided that I'd scratch that itch and, today was the day to do it!
After some routing issues, I parked-up and through the miracle of bipedal motion I made my way to the Old Town and seafront.
First impressions: I was surprised how busy it was (especially the promenade); there were many more Spanish voices than I expected and assumed that they were Spanish day trippers; There was a good mix of ages out and about; the older generation was out in force! I also saw my first, second, third ... tandem mobility scooters!
The tallest building you see in the next photograph is one of the buildings I was particularly interested in.
Here is a closer view of it:
Apparently it is an appartement building (more info here)
Much of the Old Town was closed, and I'm not sure whether that was because it was a Sunday or because owners are having their own holidays?
Popped down again after dark to see what it was like. Itch scratched!
