A Day on the Links and a Great Lunch

Tuesday, 3 February, 2015:

About two weeks ago Cobra TE/DE David "Brady" Durán mentioned that we should get together for a round of golf some day soon.

Today was that day as we were joined by Cobra OG Roberto who is David's brother and by Tomás who is David's father-in-law.

We were in store for a fun 18 holes at a par three, pitch and putt golf course in the Murcia suburb of Montepríncipe.

The only drawbacks would be a very strong wind and my sudden, and heretofore unknown, ability to hit the ball really well.

The price was right
at 5 Euros for 18 holes

 Clear but very windy

The greens were FAST

Roberto teeing off

Tomás is a GOOD golfer

He was also a very good person who was fun to pair up with on a round of golf.

 Stay left David

Three straight water holes

Amazingly, all four of us
hit this small green

 I was happy with this shot

But not this one

Tomás drained this for par

So did I

It broke to soon

We all had fun times
at the beach today

Nice follow through Roberto

After a caña or two to celebrate our fun round, we headed to David and Rocio's home for a genuine Murcian lunch.

It was GOOD!!!!!!!

At their beautiful penthouse home, we were joined by Carmina who is Tomás' wife and Rocio's, a.k.a. La Reina, mother.

We had a fun lunch that lasted a long time as we were able to sit, eat, drink and share long talks about all sorts of fun things.

Me with the Group

It was another great day in España with some really good people.

These are the types of days that I cherish and remember the most on my trips abroad.
