San Javier

Have spent the last few days walking down the coast from Benidorm and hope to reach Caratagena later today.

It was nice to leave the tourist hussle that was Benidorm, although there was plenty to see there.

Unfortunately, the coast has become more boring, especially south of Alicante. It’s flatter and there are rather boring retirement developments everywhere. And almost everything seems to be closed this time of year.

My new solid tyres proved their worth yesterday, when I found a large piece of glass sticking into one of them. Not to worry, just pull it out and keep going. Don’t have much mileage on them yet and I am very interested in seeing how they last.

I was feeling very tired and lethargic on Friday and finally figured out that I probably needed some extra calories. Something that I set about trying to remedy with gusto. Started the day with a gigantic breakfast buffet, eating at least one of everything. Then I stopped for a large English breakfast at eleven. Early afternoon found me at McDonald’s, feasting on a large Big Mac menu, followed by a sundae and coffee with ice cream.
Finished the day by eating a three course Chinese dinner and bought a tub of ice cream on the way back to my room..
Surprisingly, I felt restored the next day!
