Feels like home. Albir and Benidorm and our Family Reunion

 I was so happy to get back to the camping at Cap Blanch and they were so happy to see me.  A lot of the same people were here and they said how I'd grown and gave me sweets and kisses.  The sweets were OK.  The sea is nice and warm now so we can swim in it

and they have opened up jumping castles and exciting rides.

The Fun fair is open!

Daddy found this great shady spot to park the van and we all went and got our hair cut to celebrate

I let this man wash my hair but not Mama
and hung out at the Ferret ear (mama says ironmongers) where they say they spent more of my inheritance on chairs .  I am so excited about my cousins coming.  They arrived on Monday and came and spent a couple of days at the van and they are great and they could sit down.

My cousins
We just settle back in when Mama packs us all up and whisks us off in a taxi to Benidorm.  I am not too happy about this but only come along because she promises that I will see my cousins and more Aunts and Uncles coming from all over the world and party party party.  
Aunty Jayne and Aunty Ping are the first to arrive and we have a lovely time with them.

They do make Mama laugh.  And me....

We have a lovely flat next to the park in Benidorm.  Mama says that she actually quite likes it and it's not as bad as she thought Benidorm would be in June.

We all get together in the big park in Benidorm.  And we have a ball.

 Early one morning we held a memorial for Grandpappy.  Mama chose a spot overlooking the sea and the whole family got there just as the sun came up.  Mama gave a speech which made her cry and Uncle Joe spoke and so did Aunty Tee and Aunty Audrey and the sun came up and turned the sky pink and a seagull sat on the wall and watched us.  We put some of Grandpappy's ashes in the sea and they floated away like a puff of smoke and Mama said it reminded her of Goa. 
Then we all went and had carajillos and croissants in a bar and it was a fabulous way to say bye bye to Grandpappy.

Then it was party party party.
Uncle Thomas

I took a real liking to my Uncle Doug who I called Uncle Thomas and to my Uncle Chris and my Auntie Jessica who I called the lady.  She came with her Mama Aunty Marion.  Mama says never have a party without Aunty Marion as she makes magic happen.
Aunty Marion and the lady

All my aunties made a fuss of me and bought me presents and sang happy birthday.  Because I am no longer 2 and a half.

And then it was time to say bye bye to Benidorm.  I was so happy to see Nona.  I had missed her.
Looking for Nona
Bye bye Beni
We had one last party back at the van and then they all left

Partying with Nona
 And I was all at sea

Still, this time in 2 weeks I will be back in the arms of my Nanny and Ganggang and I can't wait.
