A trip to Alcalali…..

Sunday 11/10/2020. We walked to the village to meet-up for the normal coffee and bacon butty, good chin wag with everyone before setting off to Marian and Martin’s. It’s lovely having family only two hours away, where we can enjoy visiting new places, and their fantastic villa, with views to die for, only one problem lots of steps! Martin cooked us dinner and we had a good catch up on the news.

Monday12/10/2020. After a late start we went to Alcalali for coffee, sadly most of the places were shut as it is a fiesta weekend. We were served by a surly Spanish man, who had no interest in us, so we had a quick coffee then moved on. Back in the car, we travelled to Xalo which was quite busy, we sat down outside and waited for service which did not come, so in the bar the boys went. We were not impressed with this place either, but we did have a nice bottle of vino Tinto. Across the road we noticed a busier restaurant with waiters so finished the wine then we went over, and there we stopped, we had a variety of tapas, and more vino Tinto, third time lucky.
Back to Marian’s and Geoff cooked two big trout’s on the bbq, whilst I did roasted vegetables. Lovely day.

Tuesday 13/10/2020. Another lazy morning before we went out for coffee, this time to a tiny village called Lliber, tiny little streets, but so much character, Marian took us to the square where there was a lovely restaurant on the hill. We had coffee, then decided to have some wine with tapas, the waitress was French so we were talking French, Spanish and of course English, we will be going back here. We left about 4.30pm so another booze day.
