Hurrah the sun came out!! So we scrapped our sight seeing plans, grabbed the towels and headed for the beach! The beach closest to us is a beautiful long stretch of clean golden sand, just perfect for sunbathing! The sea however is FREEZING! After selecting two sun loungers (with cushions – very posh!) and a handy umbrella it was time to settle down with a good book. Bliss!! I did brave the sea for a swim once (Steve was too chicken) and found it rather refreshing after the initial “OH MY GOD IT’S COLD!!”. But mostly I enjoyed people watching, getting a tan and reading my book. A perfect holiday day!
At around 4 o clock we decided to stroll along the front in search of a cafe for coffee and something to eat. Unfortunately the one we chose offered neither so after a cold drink we headed back home for tea. If ever you’re coming to Valencia and are in search of a friendly hostel with a kitchen, sunny roof terrace and good company I can recommend Beach Home. It’s an easy stroll from the beach and metro stations and Nial (the owner) and his daughter Sophie are lovely! Had a great time singing and dancing to Katy Perry and Lou Reed last night..rock and roll as usual 😛
It’s another sunny day today so it’s back to the beach for me while Steve takes it easy here as he’s not feeling very well 😦
