26 Feb Neptune, my God of the Sea
What I’m posting today it’s just a continuation of the previous post from those early years when I first came to Mojácar. Beautiful Mojacar. I ‘ve told you about the abiding impression that it left on me. I felt a sudden rush of emotion! And I didn’t even know already all that remained to be visited…
One day, a client of mine told me that he wanted to buy a restaurant beside the beach. It’s not easy to find something like that . I was inquiring about that when someone informed me that the Neptuno – a beach bar that I loved- might be on sale. I went into ecstasies about it! Not for my client but for myself. Look at the picture below and see how it looked like in (1998)!
I’d loved this bar since I’d come across it. I felt lucky to live so close and eat its mouth-watering dishes. It had a barbecue, skewers, paellas, … everything you might expect for a Spanish bar on the beach. And the best of all, its endless link with the sea: the gentle breeze, the scent of salt, … It’s inexplicable, these sensations come together and leaves you in high spirits. Staying on a site like this is my idea of sheer bliss. You feel as if you had achieved all your goals!
I remember one day when I went to have lunch here with some friends from Torrevieja. Then ,when I came to live in Mojacar, many of my friends were outsiders). Ha, ha! We ordered a fish casserole. How scrumptious it was!! 😉
Oh, no! that hasn’t changed since then. In our menu, we still have a superb fish and seafood casserole. Actually it’s finger-licking good. The proof is below.
This really was love at first sight. I can remember when I found the Neptuno- how incredible a sensation!. I knew it’d be for me. It hold me spellbound, feeling those butterflies in my stomach.
It had real charm, character. And we’re still meant for each other. It’s been 12 years of uninterrupted idyll; with great and not- so-great moments, but still together.
Over the years Neptuno Mojácar has evolved for the better; always aiming to improve. But something never changes: its essence.
