  Lisa had the dubious honour of turning thirty on 24 June 2004, and her one wish was a big family holiday in the sun (oh and possibly a fancy designer bracelet, and maybe an Apple iPod too!).

We found a villa through visitourvilla.com, in a quiet estate near the village of Adsubia, near the market town of Pego, near the seaside town of Javea (!)  Or in other words, about half way between Valencia and Alicante...approx 90 mins drive from either airport.

Lisa, Campbell, Donna, Ian, Alistair, Joan, Reg, Joan and Roz packed their suitcases (some larger than others) and jetted off on Excel Airways for a week's R&R.

Here's the story...

Views in and around the villa (who's the dodgy geezer in the orange shorts, seems to pop up everywhere)... 

Nuestro Sueno - Cafe del Mar time!     Across the fruit groves     More fruit groves     Stylish place this

     

Ballistrade     Pego just before dusk      Eat my shorts     What's through the arched window

Credit to Lisa for many of the arty shots above. 

 

Poolside antics were common, including the drinking (not shown)...

Spot the Ball...

Angel (can you see the wires)     And it's Lineker     Timing is everything...wait, what's he signalling?     Spot the wires take #2

Well it was bound to happen sometime

 

Diving competition...

Synchronised diving...nice     But did he make it all the way around...     Alert, low-flying Reggie incoming (bet that hurt)     Room for novices too

 

Lisa's Synchronised Swimming and Aquafit Classes were a big hit...

And now we make a star     Positions everybody, please     Hang on, one of the punters is cheating!     Look Mum no hands (it's easy, honest)

 

Inflatable toys...  

S'ok Ian, I can fight 'im off wiv me bare 'ands, pet     The Crocodile Tamer (which one's the croc though)     Peace and tranquility     ...but not any more (watch out, Nixey's about)

 

...and dodgy rafts (oh yeah and another inflatable toy)...

It'll never float     Er, how'd they do that then?     But where's the hose attached...

 

Some rare shots of a cultured night out in nearby Denia...

Dudes at dusk     Stawberries and ice cream...nothing like it

 

Of an evening, the company was good (including Flip n Eck the Lizards...Eck's camera shy though)... 

The Housemates relax on the terrace     Who's the impostor

 

Here's the birthday girl herself - look closely at the quality beauty product she's holding up (no not Campbell, the other one)... 

Birthday Girl, wearing well     Aw... (maybe a bit smashed tho')

 

Appropriately the holiday finished off with some fireworks in nearby Pego, and a classic sunset... 

Happy Birthday Lisa, from all at Pego!     Dusky pink...beat that
