What a difference from last Sunday! The blue skies have gone and we have rain and temperatures have dropped.
We set out a bit late so we thought a wander through the centre of Alicante would be better. It seems everyone else had the same idea and cafes were very busy. Mostly outside on the terrace. I am glad to see that the majority of the people are diligently wearing masks.
I asked Sr P to pick the route as we walked and I would stop to take photos of the streets along the way.
So no blue skies and it had just stopped raining as I mentioned previously. It was a moody Alicante City today! Mind you I don't understand when some people say rain makes them melancholy as I enjoy a walk in the rain or after it has rained. It is as if everything has been cleaned up and the air is crisper and fresher too.
This promenade leads up to the shopping centre so we didn't go all the way up there.
I followed Sr P down the road to the Gabriel Miro Gardens taking photographs as we walked.
All these little streets turn off into the esplanade and lead to the port and also the Postiguet Beach. I always say that you can't get lost in Alicante City because all you have to do is keep walking down to the sea and the port to get your bearings.
One of the narrow streets leading up to the Santa Barbara Castle. This is where we turned around and made our way back to the car as we were more than ready to go home for lunch.
