Well it took us 13 minutes to walk to the corner of Levante beach from the Flamingo Oasis and 15 minutes to return so quite a walk to do every day

Image

but today our last day we wanted comfortable beds, ones where the heads raise and of course to see the sea

on the corner, a cafe that Mrs Db liked the look of

Image

but the first job was to find that spot on the beach

Image

I guess along here a bit lol

Image

oppposite this nice TUI hotel, I think it may be in the German Brochures

Image

yes here, this is what we have missed all week staying in the AI, we are beach people really

Image

The sun was warm but not too hot to require a parasol, so two beds cost 8 euro's, I personally think 12 euro's a day for beds and a parasol a bit steep

Image

but Mrs Db is now settled and happy, for me after taking a close shot of the island, I was going to do that walk in the sunshine again

Image

so off I go, Benidorm is a different place in the sunshine, perfect in April

Image

but it must be heaving in July /August time

Image

hope you can read these, I can blow them up if anybody needed them

Image

Image

It was 10.42am and the beaches were near empty

Image

more prices, not sure whether I got some of the before on the previous walk

Image

a very nice beach but the resort has been swamped with high risers and must get very crowded in the high season

Image

but I suppose many clientes get cocooned in the AI resorts which is a shame really

Image

I saw plenty of police presence on my two walks but this time on a Segway lol, perhaps the new speed cop for the mobility scooters

Image

this time of the year one can choose whatever bed that takes you fancy

Image

Image

anybody joining me on this picture walk doesn't of course lose weight lol

Image

a few restaurants

Image

Image

Image

Image

not a lot of comment on some of these pictures, as the pictures talk for themselves

Image

but they show you some of the restaurants on the front

Image

here, a fit class has started but expands beyond believe, as you will see in a picture later

Image

and what else can you say about this sand sculpture but magnificent

Image

I guess this walk will bring back memories for some

Image

I did try to use the google street map but it seems to collapse halfway along, as an approaching van going in the other direction seems to lock it all up

Image

however, we have some of the current prices now

Image

I like this pic, sort of natural lol

Image

Image

Image

some of the work that goes into these sand scenes are mind blowing, this guy has two working fountains in this model

Image

coffee and Bailey fans lol

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

This spot, 4 days earlier had Merlin and a Dragon, hope it wasn't ruined by vandals but I guess the artists do move on from time to time, it a shame things of beauty just have to disappear

Image

but we walk on

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

and we reach the Burger King again lol

Image

The beach is starting to narrow a bit now

Image

again another superb sand sculpture

Image

Image

Image

this cafe is just before the headland and a lot of local people seem to be using it

Image

on the Monday it was misty an cloudy and although I walked to the Bagoda sort of place, the pictures were a waste of time

Image

so with it being such a nice day, I had to go back

Image

I don't know much of the history of this place but I can't remember it being here in 1970, I know a webcam picture overlooks it

Image

Image

a couple of people were playing, 'I had a dream' on reed pipes and were also selling them for 4 euro's lol

Image

It was a lovely place to stand and take in the views

Image

Image

oh course, I had to go to the end of it

Image

and get those views of the bays

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

and the Levante side, the light not so good for pics

Image

Image

Image

Image

so having left Mrs Db for a longtime, it was time to go back, couple of last shots

Image

Image

so it was back through the passage way

Image

some last prices

Image

a last look at the man resting with his horse

Image

The ever expanding fitness class lol

Image

Image

and back to Mrs Db

Image

Image

Then it was meal time lol we picked Roman's

Image

Image

Image

I had a burger and Mrs Db had a baggette

Image

washed down with a litre of Sangria

Image

This is what you miss staying in AI, waiter what do you mean our AI cards don't work here, you mean we have to pay out here lol

Image

anyway we stay on the beach well after 5pm, a lovely last day
