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.

CHANGE OF DATE FOR ZARAGOZA AND TERUEL TRIP 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.
