Trip to Spain, part 1
The lettuce field near our house
Here are some photos from Spain. We had a really lovely time! I'll do a separate post about food - this is a bit more general.
The food market in Alicante
We lived in Torre de la Horadada, where my parents have a house. This is just south of Torrevieja, near Pilar de la Horadada, San Pedro and further south, San Javier. We made day trips to Alicante and to Cartagena, and went to several of the lovely markets that are always held in the various villages nearby.
My parents in front of their palm tree.
My dad's rather tiny lemon tree, limonera. It hasn't given any fruit yet, but he hasn't given up hope...
Our neighbor's tree with.. what? Does anyone know? There's some ripe fruit to the left in the photo. They're not plums, but something similar, maybe?
The much sadder lettuce field, after the harvest.
