Holidays are over


People were making the most of it yesterday on the beaches of the province.

This photo from Laverdad shows La Playa de San Juan in Alicante.

August ends today and along with it the traditional holiday period. All the visitors, who have crowded the roads and filled the beaches have gone home leaving the towns quiet again for those who live here.

Children, at least in the UK, will be preparing to go back to school which will bring a sigh of relief to many mums.

All in all, I don’t think the tourist season this year has been as disastrous as many feared it might be. Of course, we all hope for some signs of economic recovery soon. I doubt that we will see the boom years back though.
