It was another vote for swimming but we eventually persuaded them all to come for a walk to spend their holiday (and tooth fairy) money and try to find the beach. We had been told the best way to get there from a few people at the hotel and basically we’d got about half way maybe a bit more, but there was a lot of steps! We set off assuming we’d have to take the lift back up and maybe even down! We’d gone in the wrong direction the first time so the beach wasn’t quite as far as we thought and the steps weren’t what we expected either. The streets basically turned into the steps, with cafe’s and shops winding the way down, and the steps were quite big so it was easy to push the pram down. Noah was on the look out for a Spanish football kit and we finally found one that was close to his budget and when we said he didn’t have enough money the man knocked some money off. Noah asked if he’d get any change but it was still 2 euros over what he had so the answer was no (I had planned to sub him the extra since he was buying something worthwhile)…the man then knocked another 2 euros off…which still meant no change. so he still refused, so the man offered to include the socks…but still no change so still a no from Noah. I was amazed at how much he managed to barter him down to, and equally amazed he still said no just because he wasn’t getting any change!!! Anyway at the bottom of the steps (I think there were a few hundred steps) was the promenade and beach, so we had a wander along and a play in a little park on the beach.
We then headed back and decided that we’d try going back up the steps, it was pretty easy really as they weren’t at all steep and it was a nice scenic walk. At the top of the steps Noah was finally persuaded to part with half of his money…..
…on a car OF COURSE!!!! Austin had bought a plane half way down the steps, but was a bit gutted when he discovered it didn’t really fly!!!!
Me and Richard spent our holiday money from my Mum on a giant drink!!
….the photo doesn’t really do it justice but the glasses each held a litre and took us quite a while to drink! By the time we made it back to the hotel it was time for tea and the evening’s entertainment which meant Caitlin got to wear her purchase…Spanish dancing shoes!!!
The next day was back to more swimming and drinking….
….before our last night of entertainment.
On our final day we got collected from the hotel just after our mid-day check out so there was time for a very quick swim before lunch, then time to leave! We all had a great time relaxing and swimming in the sun. The kids made lots of friends and loved doing this dance every night at the kids entertainment….
