Also a huge thank you to Kay, Bernard and their helpers at the Tea Gardens for a wonderfully well organised day, superb food and excellent surroundings. We all had a fantastic day out.

Treatment Caution

Not wishing to trample on other peoples firmly held beliefs but – I would advise anyone thinking of trying such treatment to Google the phrases   “Bio electrical energy therapy cancer scam” and or “Bio electrical energy therapy scam”, before trying such treatments on themselves or their pets, where alternative thoughts on this subject can be obtained



What Bird of Prey is This ?

I’m sure there is  Digamist out there who can tell what this is – sorry about shaky camera – long way away and very large bird !   Dropped like a stone to the mountain top after prey I think …..In my little bird book it could be a Bonelli’s Eagle – I think all these birds should carry identity documents ………

I went to the Alhambra last week with friends and we were also having difficulty getting tickets, but I found out if you book accommodation to stay over night most hotels hold tickets to sell to guests, I found this Pension Venecia Gomerez  which is situated in the historic centre of Granada perfect for wandering around the Cathedral etc. and the many tapas bars, it was a 20min walk to the Alhambra or there is a bus running up and down very frequently.

The web site is http://www.veneciagomerez.com telephone +34607060750 Carlos is the owner and speaks English, there were 3 of us we booked the apartment which cost 60 euros a night, it was very nice spotlessly clean and ever thing you needed would thoroughly recommend it, he also has just rooms which I did not see but would imagine the same standard he got our tickets for the palace which were 15 euros plus a 5 euro booking fee each, there is also parking for a fee which we didn’t use as we caught the bus from Nerja,

Hope this helps and I have to say it is worth staying overnight to enjoy the rest of Granada

best regards
