Alcazaba Almeria - Moorish Fort.

Today's destination was a visit to the spectacular Alcazaba Almeria, an ancient Moorish fort second only to the Alhambra at Granada.

It is a little complicated to access by car, and we found the easiest way was to park the car near to the port area and complete the journey to the entrance on foot. It is up the narrow streets directly opposite the port, and you should walk up Calle De La Reina which will take you right to the entrance steps.

If you are an EU resident, and have your passport with you, then entrance is free of charge.

The monument is in relatively excellent condition and dates from the Muslim occupation of Spain of the 11th century, together with some Roman artefacts.

It reminded us of the Mogul Dynasty forts of a similar era that we visited in India.

Well worth a visit if you find yourself near to the city of Almeria.

Lunch today was at a restaurant of world renown - burger and fries at the Golden Arches.

Lunch With Bombo And Sammy.

Today we received an invitation to lunch from Bombo and Sammy, and when we arrived, much to our surprise, they had brought along mum and dad, Paul and Elaine, fellow bloggers from The Manly Ferry Blog. They knew that we had missed a meeting with them in Sydney in 2012, and the two little fellas wanted to make sure we all met up before they returned to Oz. They are such clever little fellas, because the day was a huge success for four people who have never met, yet felt they had known each other for years. Yes, that is the power of blogging.

We were told to meet at  Titos Beach Bar Mojacar which Sammy told Margaret was the coolest place in town to have a few drinks and lunch. Super food, loads of drinks, and all at very reasonable prices. Of course, all outdoors in the warm Spanish sun.

We chatted for hours on varying subjects, peppered with motorhome and narrowboat talk. We arrived in Mojacar at 11.45am and left at 6.15pm, and only then because they were closing the bar, and darkness was rapidly descending.

What a truly fantastic day, our best so far while we have been here this year.

Thanks Bombo and Sammy you did good.
