Geneva 6AM

After 1 1/2 hour flight, first stop for breakfast at 9AM at the Marina

 

Followed by a quick 6 euro haircut downtown

... followed by a 30 minute drive up the mountains for a superbe view towards the Med

 

aha, TGV espagnol goes here too, 300kph to Madrid!

Then Pilar joins us for a DEEElicious tapas lunch

 

followed by Irish coffee

 

 

quick stop at the apartment

 

then on to sailing/dinner/laughter/adventure on Philippe's Pogo40 (the Pogo that went across the Atlantic!)

 

 

followed by great sundowners and dinner... and laughs

next day breakfast with a view!

and we visit the fish and vegetable market

and we cannot resist having some tapas and fresh juice too

.....followed by delicious lunch on this beautiful beach with Pilar

and a swim in the Med and the pool

followed by a well deserved nap....

then we drive up to the 220m high hill and castle-fortress overlooking Alicante

 

 

for another sundowner

 

 

 

and stroll in the parks where BIG ficus trees loom...

 

and where we find more tapas bar-restaurants

slow food, mmmmmm so good!
