Our number one purpose of being in the vicinity of the Alicante area was a gorgeous chocolate and cream coloured cat going by the name of ‘Lottie’. We had the pleasure to care for her for five days, while her human Mum headed off for a city break in Berlin.
As well as caring for Lottie we had the added bonus of the superb San Juan Beach to enjoy strolling along, while others took the advance of a faster mode of transport than us.
Once we stopped taking in the broad vistas of the beach and buildings we found a bench to sit on, our attention was taken up with a more concentrated view of people watching, and the wide-ranging of clothing attire or the lack of it in some cases!.
Here I was wearing two layers of clothing, jeans and a scarf, with nude bathers [no photos you will just have to use your imagination] not far along the beach. Was I overdressed? Or were they underdressed? Well, from my perspective, I thought I was not overdressed, nor was I in any hurry to change this decision as it felt a wee bit too nippy to undress or swim for that matter. The temperature was around 19deg! Maybe the said bathers were from Norway?
Before we felt the urge to fall asleep on the seaside bench underneath the palm trees. We uplifted ourselves from our posy to keep on walking down the promenade to a somewhat favourite local restaurant serving up a variety of tapas, which we kindly took up their challenge of indulging in a few with a beer or two. After feeling more than contented and full.
We headed on back to see how Lottie’s morning had been, with the sun at the back of us and a backward view from our beginning journey.
One delightful activity we participated in with Lottie from the position of the balcony was watching the sunrise over San Juan beach. Everyone one of us has a special place we affectionately say is our piece of paradise even for a cat called Lottie.
