The English Shop
25 September 2008 | Ayamonte
I started exploring the town with Joyce who was over wintering with her husband Peter on our pontoon, they had already spent 5 years in Spain at Aguadulce. We did a lot of walking to keep fit most days, along the riverside or around the many steep streets of the town, we soon became experts at where to shop economically. A good workout except for the times we stopped at a Pastilaria for coffee and cake or had wine and tapas at one of the numerous local bars. As Ayamonte has no beach it doesn't attract so many tourists with children and there are a lot of English people living in apartments so we found the inevitable shop stocking English food and products opposite the river and Plaza de Espana. I only went there to buy Toilet Duck, Chunky Caramel Kitkats plus the odd tin of baked beans as in my view the whole point of living abroad is to have a change. There was also the Euro Shop with it's book swap but there were never any titles we wanted though they did stock apple sauce!
