We went in search of a bead store. I’ve gotten itchy fingers, needing to do something crafty.
Easy train ride – 30 euro total roundtrip for the two of us. It took a little over an hour each way, with a number of stops, but it was comfortable. As we traveled inland, we saw a variety of crops – not just the oranges close to home. Lots of lemon groves, including my favorite: a rogue orange tree in the middle of a large group of lemon trees.
Murcia has—in my opinion—several advantages over Alicante:
· Lots of parks, with actual green space and fenced-in areas for dogs (We met Inca, a striped brindle who was happy to take treats.)
· Flat topography
· Lots of “new” buildings: houses, apartments, businesses
But it was already hot in May – and no ocean breeze. We’ll keep Alicante.
All in all, a most pleasant day – Vale!
