We are dirty stopouts, we didn't get back from our evening paseo till (gasp) nearly 10 pm. This is because of the sheer novelty of being able to sit at a beach bar for the first time in over 3 months. G & T with a sea view, and the happy buzz of chatter that is so much part of Spanish life and has been so sadly missing. A photographer from the local paper passed us by and took a photo of the two attractive young women at the next (socially distanced) table instead. Mind, we probably won't be back, because our two drinks and no tapas cost 12 euros. I do expect G&T in a beach bar to be expensive, but that is going too far.
It was actually our second outing of the day; in the morning we drove into town and I ventured into Lidl for the first time since lockdown. Not a happy experience, there were too many people in there and the aisles are narrower than in Mercadona, so it's impossible to keep your distance. I gave up on half my shopping list in the end; I'll get the rest from Mercadona at a less busy time. Meanwhile S went to the delicatessen that sells foreign food, and I went to the pet shop and bought some more collars for Mystère. Much use was made of hand gel. Then we sat down in a cafe!! And had coffee and tostadas with tomato. Another habit that has become a novelty.
It's been a lovely sunny day; more please!
