Denia, Grandkids and. A Messy Night!!

Well, another great week, this retirement lark is definitely suiting Debs and I.
We had a day trip to Denia on the train, what a lovely place. Lunch and a cold beer by the Marina and a stroll around the town in 41c temperatures. Lovely place though and well worth a stop if you are travelling that way.
Had a real treat by meeting up with my Children and Grandchildren and respective In Laws as they drove down from Javea to see us, I am one very happy Bampi now having had the pleasure of their company for a while.
The Cadac has had a couple of airings this week, this is a great piece of equipment, I have the Safari Chef LP, and can recommend it for anyone who is contemplating buying a gas BBQ, it's perfect for two or three people.
Have cycled from here along the seafront to Altea and back a couple of times this week, nothing too strenuous, but a gentle 6 mile plod, it makes me feel less guilty about sniffling a cold beer and a Tapa at Cafe Paradise in Albir on the way back(€1.50 a pint and a Tapa!)
We went into town with Bob, Leslie, Gerry and Arlene on Thursday Night and saw Benidorm Tom Jones, a Micheal Buble tribute, Acer somebody from the TV Show Benidorm and a 6'5 gay comedian! What a great evening we had, real mix and just about sums up the mixture of this area, beaches, castles, great food and seaside entertainment, marvellous.
Sadly this week has seen the departure of Brian and Sarah and also Bob(Papa Smurf) and Leslie, as they return towards The UK, we have become very good friends and we shall miss them, but will meet up again next season I am sure.
We met up with a couple of old friends in town yesterday, and had a great afternoon and evening, got rather messy and generally had a thoroughly enjoyable time!
Total spend so far including socialising and food etc is
€2665, but we now have a couple of quiet weeks ahead so am happy that we are still within our budget.

Men behaving badly, enough said I think. It's a RAF and Rugby thing. #rugbyglue!!
