So, the reason I’m all out of sync with my posts this week is because the kids have been off school for a week and we spent a good chunk of it on the coast of Spain with my in-laws.
We stayed in a town on the Valencian coast called Javea (in Spanish) or Xabia (in Valencian). I never really worked out what the correct pronunciation should be…
There are artworks along the promenade (perfect for climbing on)
The nearby coastal scenery is absolutely stunning (as was the weather!)
It was so nice to sit on the beach in short sleeves!
There are citrus trees everywhere
We took a ride down the coast on a tram
We even managed to avoid the worst of the storm in a tapas bar – but it looked impressive as it rolled in
And left wavey conditions behind it
These are just some of my favourites from our trip – if you’d like to see more, I have an album on flickr with a few more (it’s not hundreds, honest!) and then head over to see Clare’s beautiful pictures from this week.
