Where I stayed
In the Camper Van
Dave and Kath suggested a weekend in Benidorm taking the dogs with us. We set sail in the camper van and headed off to casa Green to meet up with them and their friends, Warwick and Karen before setting off in convoy to the "Blackpool" of the Costa's.
We parked up on a street they knew well and set up camp. Heading off to the busy town to find a spot to eat, Menu-del-dia and mucho vino tambien!.. we're hoping to distract the dogs before they eat each other (not passionally I'm afraid to say!)
Great lunch and good company sets the agenda for the weekend...followed by a long walk in the nice warm sunshine with the dogs along the Prom dodging all those who can't on their motorbility scooters, before heading back to the campers to get ready for a big night out...Look out Madge
Out on the lash at several bars as well as sampling the culinary delights of K.F.C. before heading off to the comedy club to see a Bitish comedian called "Albi-senior" don't know which was funnier him or the support; "Sister Act". We all agreed the closing stripper delivered the most entertainment.
Glorious Sunday morning and another stroll taking in breakfast and lunch on both sides of the esplanade Pontiente and Levante...Stopped to watch the sunday morning choir on the beach...strolled through the International market enjoying the roast chestnuts and nougat...And before the weekend was complete...Our mission...We went in search of the Sol Pelicanos hotel, the home of (we were reliably informed by our contacts in the know) the legendary Madge...We found her scooter but no Madge...She's probably in the bridal suite with Mel...or maybe; they're in secret negotiations with Senor Doves to buy Pigeon Island...mmm...who knows?
Set off back home late afternoon...Good weather...Good fun...Good company...A great weekend had by all.
Oh and if you happen to see Madge when you're in Benidorm...say hello from us.
