7 December 2017 – Denia to Javea Windmills

20 of us for last week’s walk, 8 for today’s
Lots of reasons for the difference in numbers, and to be honest it was really nice to have a small group for a change
We were also very lucky with the weather, which was much warmer than expected
After two weeks of sun, but cold winds, we all came dressed for the worse today
But by the time we reached our banana break we had removed most of the extra layers
It felt more like late Spring than early December
Not sure if it was the size of the group, but we reached the windmills much earlier than usual
We were surprised to find there were quite a few Spanish families and groups at the windmills, though plenty of space for all
We usually do this walk in December, and for the past couple of years it has been cold enough to be uncomfortable having our picnic
But not today, it was warm and no one was in any hurry to get going again
We soon left the “crowds” behind and had the area to ourselves
We had another break when we reached the tower, to enjoy the afternoon sun
When we reached the promenade we found that the restaurants were all very busy
We managed to find one to have a drink and a break, but were not impressed to be charged tourist prices of 4.50 for a beer
