Little Yellow Noddy Car

Just sitting here watching the Bahrain Gran Prix with my 4 year old grandson who has been with us for a few weeks holiday. He had us all in stitches as he was convinced that he had seen Noddies car on the Urb, of course we assumed his imagination was running wild as it can do when you're 4. However we saw the aforementioned car on the road by Dos Mas the other day being driven by an old lady. My grandson is now not only convinced that Noddy and his car are alive and well on the Urb but that he is here on the Urb and living with his Granny! Oh to be young.

Simon Ward

Sad news to hear that Simon Ward of Sunseekers
in Quesada has passed away.
Our condolences to his two children.


We knew of Simon but not that well.
He was known to be a bit of a scoundrel from what we heard.
Rest in peace

Might make it a bit safer buying a place in Quesada!

Relocating to Spain

Hi, my wife and I are thinking of making a move to LA Marina. We are a little concerned about such issues like healthcare. Do the Spanish NHS honour our. E111 cards now that we are set to leave europe? We have heard some stories from people that the Spanish authorities have been taking these cards from ex-pats without any explanation.
Does anyone have an opinion whether this is a good or bad time for Brits moving to Spain?
Where would be the best place? We have heard that LA Marina Urb is basically a massive housing estate. We do not want Blackpool with sunshine, any suggestions?

It is most definitely not Blackpool in the sun. I only visit there and have never seen a kiss-me-quick hat yet. It is a place to chill. Outside of the "season" you hear more yapping dogs than people at night. As for the Brexit thing, it is too early to tell. If you want lively give it a miss, but to chill take the leap

Thanks for the comments Silverfox, it's just that we have heard some 'horror stories' about life in the sun. Wasn't sure if Brexit had kicked in as yet, anyway it may make no difference at all. We are due to come over soon so will get first hand experience. On another subject does anyone know when the Processionary Caterpillar season finishes as we are worried about our dogs?

The old yapping dog syndrome rises its head again.!! That will never change,the dogs are far more important than peoples relaxation and sleep.All the people that complain can't all be wrong?

Commented blarter222 in La Marina 2017-03-11 19:06:25 UTC

i havent got a (yappy) dog as you call them,but i would say someone with a dog who makes itself known is less likely to get burgled etc.

Commented exsas in La Marina 2017-03-12 16:51:39 UTC

Sorry,not sure who you are,I was actually addressing the comments from Silverfox1955.He has a very valid and fast increasing point,not really sure what continually yapping dogs throughout the night has to do with burglary. Not heard of any burglaries on the URB of late,I could be wrong though!!

British car mechanic

Does anyone know a good British car mechanic who can help with all the Spanish beurocracy involved in getting my car through it's mot? Think it may need a new clutch as well.



We have just heard about poison being put down in the Park area of Calle San Sebastián/Calle Argon,
La Marina Urb. Also processionary caterpillars are on the paths and verde of Calle de Monaco, La Marina Urb.
In Calle Bilbao a dog died Sunday because he ate poison on his nightly walk on the lead!!.
Please take care.

La Marina

I've seen a spraying truck doing the pine trees by me in Oasis this morning. Maybe they are doing the whole urb.

More poison found!!!
More pieces of meat were with poison in the area of la marina found.
Near the intersection of Calle Avalon / Calle San Sebastian.
The police have been giftproben seprona, and handed over to the guardia civil.
It was also a lawsuit. We know of 5 dogs by inclusion of the poison.
We ask all dog owners their animals in this neighborhood for a walk.
We've just received word that another dog was poisoned. Avda San
Fulgencio near parque Berlin. Please warn everyone and keep your
eyes open. Also we would like to ask you if you see anything
suspicious please just to write it down, if possible, take pictures
and get a sample in a plastic bag with you. You can do this then
in the guardia civil in guardamar. Ask there to an official of the seprona.
Thank you.
