Stormy day in Javea
A very stormy day in March - quite beautiful and unusual. Javea beach was pounded with waves. The smell of the sea was delicious!
Fresh fish for sale
The fish auction is a daily part of Javea life. The buyers sit behind with small hand held devices to name their price and boy is that fish fresh!
