Day 59 & 60: Spain, Mar Menor, Los Alcazares

Day 59

Nowt much to say…..

…as I spend the day catching up with the blog and the gorgeous Mr T does a bit of twitching.

Who names these birds?????

Day 60

A Day 60 haiku

60 days travel
Relaxing in the sunshine 
Doing what we planned…..

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeooooooooooooooowwwwwwww (Very loud, very violent mosquito sound)

2 minutes quiet


3 minutes quiet

Chchchchchchchchchchchchchchooooooooooooooooooooooooooow (ch as in loch) (deep throated roar)

3 minutes quiet


It’s 08:30am on the dot as the airfield Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeooooooooooooooowwwwwwww RIGHT NEXT TO US (sorry had to shout that so you could hear me!) opens for business.

So, I guess no lie in then????

Chchchchchchchchchchchchchchooooooooooooooooooooooooooow SORRY, WHAT WAS THAT, I CAN’T HEAR YOU…..You thought we were here for the peace and quiet?


It seems that last week we heard incorrectly. The airfield alongside is not used by commercial planes but is a working military field and used as a training base. So from 08:30 Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeooooooooooooooowwwwwwww ON THE DOT PLANES start to take off and don’t take a break Chchchchchchchchchchchchchchooooooooooooooooooooooooooow NOT EVEN FOR SIEsta when all good people should be resting. They do stop at 4pm so from then peace & quiet does reign.

It seems that because Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeooooooooooooooowwwwwwww LAST WEEK WAS THE “ALL Souls Day” holiday and all flights were suspended so we didn’t have a clue that this was going to start up. It’s funny what Chchchchchchchchchchchchchchooooooooooooooooooooooooooow OCCUPIES YOUR MIND WHEn it’s got nothing else to do.
