Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 23710

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 23810

so now I start to get one or two bar prices on the front

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 24010

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 24110

quite a few people doing this walk today, probably with the cloud not too much else to do if you are not AI

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 24210

on the left here, is one of five sand displays, IMO didn't think this was near the quality of the other four but the Aztec scene

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 24310

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 24410

but continuing on

A group of keep fits, probably trying to keep the food off their tums but it don't usually work lol

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 25310

and then the sand display of all displays, it could have been the forum meet up

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 25510

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 25610

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 25611

anyway continuing on

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 25710

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 25810

all sunbeds were 4 euro's each and the parasol also 4 euro's, so 12 euro's for two beds and a parasol and you have to be off them by 6pm

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 25910

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 26010

starting to pick some of the prices now

Then it was Merlin and his Dragon this was just a pile of rough sand by the end of the week, not sure whether the guy had packed up or it was vandalised but they have to move on at sometime I guess

and of course Burger king

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 27610

as one starts to get near the small peninsular between the two beaches the Levente beach starts to narrow

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 27710

and the last of the five displays that we saw

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 27810

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 27910

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 28010

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 28110

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 28210

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 28310

we then went and walked around the old town bit I do have photos but we then came out onto this peninsular

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 29110

and liked the look of his cafe overlooking the harbour

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 29310

then we went down some stairs to walk down the prom to the town

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 29410

There was a crowd gathering which turned out to be a local choir singing

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 29510

I noticed the exchange rate seemed to be good, as Thomas Cook only gave me 113, four days earlier at home, I didn't use them so up to you if you do

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 29610

I saw a sightseeing bus but not sure what they charge

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 30010

so passing the choir again, I wanted to recreate the picture of 43 years ago

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 30110

So I worked out it was just down here

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 30410

so here is the picture again

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk Img27810

and here is now, 43 years later, well as you can see not much has changed, well i've got a little fatter and perhaps a little older, all the background buildings have gone, the sunbeds are different but there's still sand there. With more warped sense of humour I was going to do this pic later in the week with a knotted hanky and an over the top Delboy cocktail but my bug put pay to it happening

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 20130424113531

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 30711

we then had a coffee and a beer in that cafe with the view and bill was 5.60 euros

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 30810

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levante beach walk 31110

and the visited the bagoda on the peninsular but I recreated the walk under better conditions on the Friday which is yet to come

The bit where you say then we went down some stairs to walk down the prom to the town just along that road near the bus stop is a bar, I cannot remember its name but its one of two from the same person, it sells the cheapest beer in the world, I cannot remember the name but sure when Graham comes on he will tell us.
