We did the laundry and the pool today. We needed a day of rest. We had wine at Le Papillon’s, watched the sunset and then dinner at Roberto’s. Now, is that dull or what?

We didn’t plan on doing much today but changed our mind at the last minute and decided to head to Estepona. There isn’t much history but it is a town of Roman origin. There is a 15th century church and an old aqueduct nearby. There are also lots of back winding streets with small shops and restaurants to get lost in. The beach is the best seen to date. It stretches for miles and has a wide walkway that accommodates people, bikes and anything that isn’t gas powered. There are play areas for the children every few hundred yards and exercise areas with basic equipment to stay in shape. We avoided this area like the plague. They even have these giant sunscreens covering areas of the walkway where you can sit and take time out, away from the sun. This town is definitely more laid back then some of the other area’s we have been. We had a wonderful lunch on the beach. The waiter was insistent that we try the fresh fish, cooked on smoldering coals. He even brought the fish to the table for inspection before sending it off for cooking. We were able to watch the fish cooking form the table. The fish served two people, with a side of fries and a salad. This is one of the best meals we have had in Spain! We poked around town for awhile and then stopped for a cold beer on the beach, at the same restaurant, before heading back to the condo for the evening. Tonight is cheese and crackers on the deck and packing for our travel to Portugal in the morning. Another road trip, yahoo!
