(228) Burning bright

A lady styling herself " Mollypops " started a thread at the site
at their General Chat message board on August 9th 2006 to which she gave the quaint heading
Lobster Lobster.

The thread progressed thus (my handle was Parsifal and my wife´s, beastess)

- I live in Quesada and I am looking for a Lobster Restaurant. Can anyone recommend one and/or phone number ??? Thanx jessi

There isn't one in quesada to my knowledge. The best fish restaurant we went to was El pescador in Torrevieja, their number is....965715474.

There's a restaurant beach side at Play flamenca that has a 'Lobster Night'.Don't know the name but sure someone else will.

It´s a Belgian Restaurant called Den Engel. We have had a few birthday treats there. it´s not cheap but excellent. 23.95 per person plus drinks. It´s a simple formula - lobster soup followed by a whole lobster with salad, chips and mayonnaise. Best washed down with a white Belgian beer called Grimberger(? spelling) in my opnion.
Book ahead. The staff speak a few languages and are very pleasant so it´s a good place for a night out.

Here´s a nice coincidence, I made the above entry last night, obviously inspired by Blake´s poem Tiger, Tiger, since the thread has the heading Lobster Lobster.
This morning I get the following e mail -

GAME: Burning Bright
This turns out to be a new computer game about Tiger Woods, even though the name of the game itself is NOT Tiger, Tiger, nor Burning Bright.
Blake´s poem was written pre-Darwin and is about his perception of supernatural design in the natural world. " What immortal hand or eye could frame thy fearful symmetry? " he wrote.

Den Engel means ´the Angel´.
