Our last day; we had planned to walk to Torremilinos and get the train back, but because of the late night and the fuzzy heads we decided to get the train there and back.
The weather was beautiful as we walked down the Spanish Steps to the Paseo and sat on the seawall. T and I even went for a paddle in the sea and despite me waving frantically to MWM indicating for him to take a photo he didn’t (fuzzy head I think). Anyway we did get some photos of us sitting on the seawall just to prove we were there.
After climbing back up the Spanish Steps exhausted we stopped at the first restaurant and ordered sandwiches and coffees. The service was terrible but the food was reasonable, satiated we set off looking for a tobacconist where I could buy my Dad a supply of cigarettes. Although cigarettes are not really as cheap in Spain as they once were, they’re still half the price they are in England, so I got him 1200.
We hopped on the train and stopped off at Spanish Square for one last brandy and coffee in the sunshine, then returned to the apartment as MWM and I were due to fly home the following morning and I had to pack. It didn’t take long and we relaxed with a cup of tea until it was time to shower and change for dinner.
We had booked a table at JJ’s for 8.30 pm, so we had a little walk before dinner to work up an appetite. After dinner we had another walk around Arroyo, we did have to wear a light jacket at night as it certainly went cooler and we couldn’t sit outside but it was still pleasant enough to walk about. We called in a bar and had a couple of drinks, no excesses this time as we had to be at the airport for 9 a.m., then went back to the apartment and to bed.
A friend of K&T’s who lives in a nearby apartment was taking us the airport so we didn’t have to leave until 8.45 a.m., as it’s only a 15 minute drive, which meant we didn’t have to get up too early. We said goodbye to K&T, who were spending another week there (lucky devils) and went to the airport. Booking in and the flight were absolutely painless and our youngest son picked us up at Liverpool John Lennon Airport, we were home for 2.30 p.m.
We really enjoyed our break, of course I had to go back to work on the Monday but I felt refreshed, even after all the late nights.
We haven’t got another holiday booked now until our Cruise in January next year. No doubt we will have some weekends away but we’re not sure where yet. I’ll keep you posted.
