Postcards From Paradise

Sorry, it's been a while again, but I've been away on holiday with my friend Angie.
A bit of a last-minute decision to get some much needed sunshine - following a recommendation from a colleague, to a place that I'd never heard of.  He said that it was very quiet and there was nothing there apart from a lovely long beach and some low key restaurants.  It sounded perfect, and turned out to be just as described!
The balcony view across the marina to the little fishing village was great, and ever changing
The beach was indeed long...... and wide ............and mostly empty
We did nothing for a week, apart from a few morning walks to the next resort for coffee and breakfast, and lazing on the beach in the sun, reading.  We had a few dips in the sea, although were slightly perturbed by the  giant jellyfish washed up on the sand
We DID take a bus trip to the nearest big town and had a wander around
and admired the little Square
I liked the reflections in this window
and the statue of this lady, who seemed to be celebrating music
Oh, and we just managed to stay awake long enough to see some beautiful sunsets 
A wonderful, relaxing week at a really lovely unspoilt and non-touristy spot.  

I expect you'd like to know the whereabouts of this little secret bit of paradise.
But then,  if I told you, it wouldn't be a secret, would it?
