Walking in the Costa Blanca

Anne and I have had a lovely time in Spain this past week, walking in the Jalon valley area of the Costa Blanca in glorious sunshine.
We stayed in a lovely B&B run by Alan and Martin two Englishmen who have made a break and set their business up in the pretty Alcalali village in the Jalon valley.
Last October we stayed in the Quadalest valley and had decided to move further north for a different walking area.
In walking terms we enjoyed Quadalest more but the friendly B&B and the great food in the Alcalali restuarants made all the difference.
Thanks to Alan and Martin for recommending Casa Canto restuarant in Benissa, stunning outlook and great food and also for their marvellous hospitality.
Casa Almar web site, go there it's lovely.

Today it looked nice so I was keen to get out on the bike, went over Glentane up to the top of Kaim quarry, it was just lovely up there, cool and clear, sat for a while admiring the view before tackling the technical downhill, didn't go all the way down but turned along to Fairlie and the Kelburn downhill, finally onto Goldenberry to round off 3.5hours of great mountain biking.
It's nice to be home!
