Retired but with a lot of living and loving still to do!

Parcent, at the foot of the Coll de Rates - one of several pueblos in the Jalon Valley, Alicante, Spain.
Spanish skies - a clear and cold January day in the Marina Alta at Parcent.
The Volta La Marina (Parcent) winner, José Manuel Díaz Fenoll, has a clear lead on the steep finishing hill.
Uncharacteristically foggy start to the first (Parcent) race in the Volta Ciclista La Marina series in Alicante.

Christmas Day stroll along the Benidorm promenade. Should have brought the bike!
Christmas Day in Benidorm, Costa Blanca - a bit different from the snows in the UK and US Eastern seaboard!
At last, back on the bike for a solo 50 km after a 2 week lay-off. Missed the company but enjoyed the Dec sun.
The view along the ridge from the summit (1100m). Calpe rock appears in the distance - was it part of this range?
Cresting the ridge of the Sierra Bernia range. Danny, Geoff and Bill follow Sheila up - ladies first!
Up early for a day's mountain walking so I caught the sunrise for a change.
Anther marcha group.
Spanish holiday today and 300+ mountain bikers ride through our estate on a marcha. Made the hill look easy!
Another wikileak - what cables say about marital harmony!

Brisk walk up to Cocoll summit today (1000m+). Magnificent views of the valley and coast, but blowing a gale.
Very windy morning - short run to Castells, where we came over some Spanish cyclists at their winter training camp!
