Catching up

Yesterday we went down to Torre to meet Chris and Linda at 11:00am. They are over here to view their house at Playa Golf which is now near completion. Chris and I, along with Rob Franklin were Assistant Headteacher's at Anfield Comp. so we had a lot to chew over.

The school closed in July this year when it merged with the neighbouring Breckfield Comp. to become the North Liverpool Academy. We knew the transition was going to be difficult which is one of the reasons Rob and I decided to retire early. It was fascinating to hear all that had transpired since we left most of which we could have predicted.

Anyway back to the story. We met Chris and Linda outside their hotel and after a couple of coffees at the Casino walked along the front at Torrevieja. It was surprising how many "lookie lookie" men pestered us. We can only assume they have a sixth sense for who are residents and who are visitors. Linda bought a D&G belt for 20€ which the man assured us was genuine! Chris bought a pair of Oakley sunglasses for 5€ which again were the real thing!

We had lunch at El Muelle and then sauntered back to our car. We brought Chris and Linda back to Bigastro to see La Casa Willo and where we live. Finally we returned them back to their hotel at about 10:30pm.

We had a wonderful day with Chris and Linda. The only downside was that we are not used to talking that much and so had raspy voices by the time we got back to Bigastro. Hopefully we will be in fine tune to sing to the children at the local primary school this afternoon.
