Crafty in the Med

I am here to enjoy meeting other bloggers and to share my love of craft ,mostly crochet, my thoughts and my daily happenings here in Alicante,Spain, my adopted country. I belong to a local choir because singing and music makes me happy. Flea markets and book shops are two of my favourite places to be. I read lots......sci´fi/fantasy,buried treasure, and off world adventures. I have a passion for history! I walk and walk and walk for about 10 months per year during the hot months I swim.

Alicante is alive!!!

I'll be out and about throughout this week so lets see if I can get some interesting photos for you!!!

one of the official photos

It's so beautiful and the firework displays are beyond impressive.

This is the Postiguet beach and in the background you can see the Santa Barbara castle. 

I'll be sleeping by day probably because its daft to stay in and the fun starts from 11pm onwards!!! 
He! he!

It's 11:41pm and we are off out. I have had my siesta so I am ready to go!!

Keep well now

Amanda :-)
