We left after having had breakfast with Corinne as Renato and Zoë had already gone to work and school. Benissa is just after Calpe and before Moreira and really pretty. We found their rented house pretty quick which was on the hill with a beautiful pool and view on the valley and the sea. Great to see Maria and Claudio again, they are always so nice and positive. We always have fun especially now that they are on holidays and in the sun again. After having installed ourselves we went to a little restaurant in Calpe for lunch at the beachside where there was a little breeze. After that we came back to stay at the pool and enjoy the sun.
In the evening we went to Benissa for dinner where we walked a bit.

This morning and during the night it was raining so we waited a little before going to the market to buy fruit, vegetables and cheese. We walked around a bit first and than we bought some more in a big supermarket.
Maria made us a big spaghetti, mmm, and around 5 we left for a walk on a special passage near the coast. The Sendero Ecologico Maritimo which was great. After a couple of hours and a stop in a beach café in a beautiful creek we came back.

After breakfast we left for Guadalest, a beautiful mountain village about 20 km from here. It has walls around it and you have to go through the mountain gate. Below you have a small lake with incredible green water. We walked around for a couple of hours, the weather changed a few times from sun to cloudy and even a bit of rain.
Coming back the sun came out again near the coast. The girls prepared a great lunch and
after a couple of hours of sunbathing we went to Moraira, another real nice place at the coast real near. We wanted to have a drink at the Café del Mar but it looked real boring and the terras wasn't in the sun so we sat in front which is the terras where I sat with Renato when we came here to buy our apartment ! Funny coincidence !
The wind became chilly and after the sun had gone we went into the village but even there it wasn't really warm so after having walked around a bit we went back and had a warm tea at the apartment where we talked till late.

After breakfast in the sun again we went for a real nice walk from the apartment direction coast through little paths. Beautiful surroundings, views and houses to see here. After about 2 hours we walked back and we prepared ourselves to leave as foreseen.
Sadly we had to say goodbye to our friends who had been so good to us. We made them promise us that they would come to visit us in Antwerp in September !!!
