the Rain in Spain


Recommended Posts

Here in our little village of Polop de la Marina on the Costa Blanca (about 8 miles north and 3 miles inland from Benidorm), it's been lovely and warm and sunny this morning (about 18 degrees ambient temperature, but feels warmer in the direct sunshine).

It's a national holiday here in Spain today (Constitution Day), so is very peaceful.


Yesterday the weather was just absolutely gorgeous.

Kathy and I went out for a spin on the motorbike up the coast to a rastro (a sort of cross between and car boot sale and a stall market), then lunch outdoors on the terrace of a cafe, then a winding route back home through the coastal mountains and villages. The scent of orange blossom as we passed the massed terraces of them was lovely.


But, clouds started to build here at lunchtime, and it's overcast now.

Local forecast is for rain showers later today and tomorrow. :-(
