Had another great holiday in casa Julip. We could not believe how good the weather was in October, we had several days of over 30c and managed to have a swim just about every day.
We had some nice tiles put into the ground floor cabana and some lockable sliding glass doors fitted, so now it make a great room to relax in downstairs, with the doors open in the summer it gives you a nice cool spot to enjoy out of the sun, and in the winter months you can close the doors and enjoy the downstairs garden without and wind bothering you.
The new shopping centre near la Zenia has now opened and it is a great place to visit. Lots of nice shops, a good entertainment area (stage and large video screen) numerous quite reasonable coffee bars and snack bars and on the upper floor there are a lot of eating places and a large childrens play area. It is set out like a small town centre, and one unique feature is that above each shop there are jets that spray out a fine mist of water which is really nice and cooling when it is hot. (it seems to be temperature controlled as one day we visited and it was a bit cooler the jets where not operating.) here is a promotional video of the centre.
Another great place to go for a drink or a meal is the Abbey Tavern, we went with our friends Tony and June and had a really nice meal plus some good entertainment, and for October is was very busy and had a great atmosphere.
