I'm so lucky to have retired to a very beautiful area of Spain.
El Campello is on the Costa Blanca. I believe it is so called for the beautiful almond tree blossoms.
The bitter almond trees have white blossom and the sweet almond trees have pink.
In February the trees are a wonderland of pretty blossom - quite a sight to behold.
Yesterday we went into town and I took a few pictures of the promenade and beach. I also took a picture of the Valor coffee shop which is where I love to drink coffee!
Valor has a huge chocolate factory about twenty minutes from where I live.
The chocolate is second to none and is sold in upmarket places like Harrods in England.
I love to buy a small selection of the chocolates when I am there and yes, that is where the chocolates pictured in my previous post came from.
