"INTO THE COOL BLUE"
Browsing through blogs I've noticed that the UK bloggers are frequently posting about beaches,holidays and fun things that they are doing in the sun. Previously I felt rather reluctant to post photos of Alicante or our frequent trips to the beach or the swimming pool as I felt it was rather lile "rubbing it in". However I believe weather conditions have improved over there in blighty so I now don't feel so guilty about posting my own beach pics.
We never go to the beach at the weekend during July and August there are just too many tourists and the beaches are heaving with crowds.... and there are always long traffic jams to get there we prefer to stay at home and soak in the swimming pool when the heat gets to you. However we are beach lovers and much prefer the beach and swimming in the sea than a pool so we do during the week. Mainly just Sr P and myself but sometimes my grand-daughter accompanies us,as you will see in these photos.
We usually go to Urbanova beach or Las Arenales del Sol which is about a 10 minutes drive from our place. We particularly like these beaches because they are very natural. They have been disturbed but minimally to cater for the sun and sea lovers and keep their natural beauty but do have the necessary facilities. Some people do not like these beaches because there are areas where you can come across underwater rocks but this is something that has never bothered us, in fact we prefer this as we like snorkel diving too. These beaches are lovely and clean,the tractor goes across early every morning and they have been awarded the International blue eco-label flags which is a guarantee that you are on a healthy beach.
