Lockdown has ended here in Spain! The restrictions for masks and social distance and so on continue of course because the pandemic is still with us!
Some inconsiderate, idiotic people seem to think everything is back to normal and they can fling away all caution having enormous parties and gatherings and doing what they like! They say their freedom has been curtailed enough! You selfish ignorant beings! Since Sunday when lockdown was lifted the number of infected has risen again and more people have died. YOU out there are curtailing my freedom and million of others right to return to a normal life. YOU do not know what freedom means!
I apologise to my followers out there that I have had to start this post with a rather severe tone to it. It just makes my "blood boil" at the total selfishness of some people.
Well I am pretty sure you are wondering what the acronym TATA stands for!
I invented it myself and it means " Travels around the area". Happy hooker in her comment on my last post mentioned she enjoyed my posts about "Travels around the area" which is where I got TATA from so this expression was coined by Happy Hooker.
By using TATA I can let you know if my posts are about just that or just a paragraph which you can skip if you find that reference to TATAs in my posts are boring
I think you are going to like this TATA!
We went on this excursion just before the first lockdown. It is one of my favourite places in the province but it is a bit far away from home. The route is beautiful! The road winds its way up from the coast from Benidorm into the Marina Baxia and up into the mountains and the views are incredible
The Castell de Guadalest (Guadalest Castle)
Looking towards Benidorm area ...way down there on the coast.
The steep meandering roads where one has to drive at times really carefully are well worth the climb to get here and see these sort of views. It is one of the most beautiful areas in the Alicantina province.
I never tire of coming here.
Once you go up to the Castell and go inside you can see these splendid views of The Reservoir.
I was invited to a wedding here once. It was fabulous! All the village were invited. The bride walked from her Gran's little house situated within the Castell followed by a trio of guitar players. People clapped as she walked towards the tiny church which is situated at the entrance to the Castel (castle). The church was so small that all the guests couldn't fit in but the doors were flung open so everyone could hear the mass and the guitars playing as they serenaded the bride and bridegroom. Afterwards the villagers were singing and dancing in the street and cheerfully bickering to get a chance to dance with the bride or the bridegroom.
If you have seen the film Mama Mia and the wedding scenes it was a bit like that.
The best wedding I have ever been to!
I finally finished the house warming gift I was making and have sent it to the USA. I cannot show you what it is as yet because the blogger in question will see it here and it is too soon! I want her to receive it first 😊
I have made these two RAOCK items this last week:
A crocheted plant pot cosy. Great to use up left over yarn!
and a BIG red bow for Lenny,my sister's dog. Kindly modelled by Sylvester the cat .
