Thursday Doors – Sunny Spain

I thought I’d save this Thursday Doors post for wintertime here in the Northern hemisphere as it hails from sunny Spain. These photos are from a trip there in late September, while the weather was still hot. This first image is of the view from one of my favourite restaurants at La Zenia beach on the Meditereanean. We ate there at least once a week when we lived on the Orihuela Costa, where we had a beautiful sea view from our house. I really miss it in the wintertime but I’m glad to be living back in Ireland, in spite of a wetter climate. I’m a home bird at heart.

We stayed in Torre de la Horadada in a beautiful villa with its own pool just a short drive south of our old home and this marina was only a few minutes walk away. The beach below is where we swam in water that was a perfect temperature for hot weather.

Even the car park had a fabulous view and an old watchtower closeby.

The building was made up of a mixture of materials, as you can see from the image below.

As this is my last post for 2022 I would like to thank everyone who took the time to visit my blog throughout the year. If any of you are travelling over the holiday period I wish you a safe journey, especially in colder climates where the roads might be icy. I’ll be starting off in January 2023 with another Thursday Doors from sunny Spain but in the meantime, have a look at Dan’s lovely collection of doors, some are even edible.

    Vaguely remember – did you not also live in Spain? Great to see you back via Thurs. Doors! How are things with you? You probably heard about the truth bombs from Twitter now Elon Musk has taken over? I welcome free speech!
    We spent our honeymoon in Malaga – later found out Picasso’s birthplace.

    Ugh – don’t remember if I pressed Post!
    Good to hear from you. Didn’t you also live in Spain for some time? How are things with you? It’s chaotic here, but since Elon Musk has taken over, I see it from the upside – I am definitely for free speech. By the way did I tell you I spent my honeymoon in Malaga – turning out to be Picasso’s birthplace.

  3. Sounds like you had a good break. It’s a blessing to enjoy being away but also to enjoy going home and where you are. Have a blessed Christmas, Jean, and I’ll look forward to seeing you next year Raise a Guinness for me. 🙂

    We flew Aer Lingus once and I hoped they would be serving Guinness. Alas, they were not. Said it didn’t taste the same if not in a pub. I’ve found the cans with the nitrogen cartridges to be good but in bottles it’s just another beer. 🙂
