Bob StansfieldThese vignettes and anecdotes recalled from a lifetime of walking in the mountains were recorded purely for the joy of remembering them. They were shared with kindred spirits by being accepted for publication in The Post and The Entertainer, English language newspapers circulating on the Costa Blanca between 1987 and the end of the century.

In old age the author finds even greater joy in remembering and is engaged in the process of editing and revising all his written works for publication on a web site in the near future.

His intention is to present newcomers to the area with an introduction to the mountains of Las Marinas and to the walking group with which he was closely associated for over 14 years and to other aspects of life on the Costa Blanca.

Although mainly about the mountains of Alicante, readers are warned that they could be whisked off to the Alps, The Lake District, Skye even the North Yorkshire Moors for equally enjoyable mountain moments.

Associated with the site will be some collections of memories from naval and constabulary days hopefully equally enjoyable. Now in a residential home in Gorton and recovering slowly from a recent heart attack Bob welcomes you to join him for a chuckle or two.

To be continued….
