HRH Prince Philip 1921-2021 " Rest in peace "
Waiting for the plumber! I do wish they'd give an approximate time of when they are going to call in.
Water started dripping down from under our apartment (we are 1st floor) yesterday and so we have to check it out if it is us or not. I think it is because I see water has accumulated in the bottom of the drum of my washing machine. This last year it has been nothing but problems with the sink and washing machine pipes.
I shan't be smiling if he keeps me waiting all day!

I do like to think my RAOCKs travel around the world so I have sent this keyring across the pond to the USA to Kathy at Hummingbird Studio at the lake. She has finally received it! 👏
The Paseo del CoCó (Coconut Walk) is finally finished and was opened last week.
It is a small stretch of land and coastline which follows on from the Postiguet Beach promenade (the city beach).
It was just a long dirt track quite narrow in some places behind some of the old coastal railway lines. It had become popular for people to use it as a shortcut to the Albufereta beach defence wall Walk which links up further along with the Alicante City coast road.
Well they have modernised this eye sore and it now extends the Postiguet promenade further along the coast to join up with with that Albufereta Beach wall coast Walk.
I must say over the last 20 years the city council has constantly been improving the public infrastructure with new roads,parks, promenades,walks and most particularly bicycle paths and so on. It looks so much better and cleaner since I came to live here with Sr P in 1975.
Sr P is particularly proud of his city (very much a city lad) and often says to me lets go here I heard they have restored this place or converted it into...bla bla ....this etc. I never tire of this there always seems to be something different or new.
It was very busy last Sunday and people were thoroughly enjoying the new Walk and of course as no cars are allowed any more they didn't have to dodge the cars trying to get through either.
On the left you can see the old railway buildings they are fenced off at present. Lets hope they are going to do something about tidying that area up and getting rid of all the graffiti on the walls.!They have converted this part of the Walk into a play and keep fit area.
This is where it joins up with the Postiguet Beach promenade.
On the left of the Walk you have the Mediterranean in all its picturesque bluey green glory!
It was a wonderful sunny morning.
I even manage to get a shot of Sr P (very rare) trying out one of the new snazzy coloured benches.
I have never seen such colourful benches before and look a red litter bin too 😃
I have given it some thought and finally I have come to a decision!
I like the snazzy benches and litter bins 💃
It now has a name!
Before I forget I also wanted to tell you that the Park I took you to a few Sundays ago in this post here ,which I mentioned was called Park No Name has finally been named (they must have heard me criticising)! It is now called Parque del Mar (The Sea Park).
As always I do very much like to use natural remedies rather than buy a bottle. I have been reading about using egg shells as a plant fertilizer.
They also mentioned that this type of fertilizer can be used on orchids but before I risk the health of my precious orchids (I have three I spoil lots!) I would like to ask you,the Green Fingers bloggers, your advice. What do you think about using this on orchids?
