                SUMMER 2011 NEWSLETTER

Thirty members and guests spent a day to remember on 9th June in Valencia and the
Albufera. After the coach dropped us off for coffee in the city centre, we strolled around the
corner to the Rice Museum where, following the audio-visual presentation, we were guided
around all four floors of the museum, seeing at first hand the complete process of rice
production from paddy field to paella. Afterwards we visited the nearby Semana Santa
Museum which features the amazing costumes and floats which have rightly made the
Valencia Semana Santa processions world-famous. The coach then took us to the village
of La Palmera in the heart of the Albufera Wildlife and Wetlands Reserve. After a substantial
three-course paella lunch at Restaurante Cañas y Barro, we went on a leisurely and
relaxing boat trip around the lake and saw herons and egrets at close quarters in their
natural habitats and the distinctive thatched cottages dotting the banks. Back on terra firma,
the coach delivered us safely back to Jávea at the end of an immensely enjoyable day.


On 23rd June thirty-seven members enjoyed a relaxed and convivial evening over dinner on
the terrace of La Galera restaurant.

Pedreguer. Directions are as follows:

  From Teulada etc. take the N332 and turn right onto the CV724 for Dénia. About 1.4 km

Thursday 15th September. Please note that we need a minimum of thirty-five people to
ensure that this dinner takes place.


This has been rescheduled to Sunday 16 th – Tuesday 18th October so that we can avail
ourselves of competitive room rates and the services of a free guide in Zaragoza. The dates
originally proposed would have coincided with the Zaragoza fiesta which would have meant
tripled hotel prices and no availability of the guide. Please see the two attachments
regarding this trip which is being organised through the good offices of Beni Connect. If you
have any preliminary queries please direct them to Geoff.
