Just thank god there isn't a generator ticking away somewhere. That would really be hell!
We are in El Campello .. it started last night few loud noises but could not see anything. Sounded like a few fireworks going off.
Well this morning all HELL let loose about 7am .. Blunderbusses and loud cracks like thunder. The Moors are coming ashore for a mock battle with the Christians.
You just donít get any peace at these wild camping spots
Spanish are amazing. We have been for a walk today along the front. It’s some sort of holiday today so all the shops and banks are shut. We have seen one small poster that says about the festival from the 11th to 15th and nothing else. There were life guards on the beach on Monday but now they have all cleared up and gone and they have even turned the water off on the beach but today the beach is packed.
The Moors and Christians had finished their battle by 10am and a small fleet of lorries were removing the tents etc from the beach.

It's not where you live... It's HOW you live..
Seen a few of these "Moros y Cristianos" festivals, those Spanish certainly know how to party.
I just wonder what the "Thought Police" would say over here in the UK if we were to celebrate the defeat of the Muslims.
I think there are quite a few re-enactments of historical battles within the UK from the past, including between Scots and English in the various Border Wars and I don't think the 'thought police' make anything of it.
