The horses are back!  The last 3 or 4 years,  horse and rider  were banned from the beach and the beach road during the Romeria due to safety concerns after a couple of minor incidents.  Happily, this year the ban was lifted, this is really good news  because when the ban was in place, the whole feel of the Romeria had changed, it just wasn’t the same.  A big Thank You to the Ayuntamiento for allowing the horses full participation again!

The weather has been just beautiful the last couple of days, although windy, it has not detracted from enjoying a nice walk along the beach.  The sea is looking beautiful with its Caribbean like turquoise waters with frothy roiling white caps.

Grounded!

Good Day all.. as the caption reads, it is indeed raining.  We did have a beautiful 4 or 5 days though when the weather was positively glorious..so Spring/Summer is trying to make its arrival here. Time for spring cleaning and early planting.. The garden centers are all ready to go as you can see in the photos from my last entry.

Well we are having a typical spring here.. lots of rain broken up by glorious days of hot sunshine.. Great weather for planting, and that is just what I have been doing.. I will post pictures when it looks like something other than a nuclear test site.

Here are a couple of sunny photos to whet your whistle and get you thinking of those hot still sunny Spanish afternoons.  The sun is blazing, the air is dry and there isn’t even a wisp of a wind.  Red planet hot,  with impossible blue cloudless skies. And as I finish preparing this post, the sun has indeed come out.

Blue skies

Some people even break into song and dance without the least provocation.

Recently we had rain for the better part of about 10 days.. it rained I would say 85 percent of the time, and it was heavy.  There has been a lot of flooding, but happily none of the houses I care for sustained any damage..yipee.  The same cannot be said for the country side.. fields are flooded, and the gray clouds still roll by, but the sun is definitely shining.  Here are some photos that I took today.  Cheers and Enjoy.

The other morning..ugh

Well, retirement certainly has it’s rewards, one of which is being able to go to the  beach everyday if I want to.. And I want to!

The sun is hot, the water is perfect for swimming..cool but not cold, no jelly fish, and very clear. For those of you that don’t know, there is great snorkeling and diving in the area.  You can snorkel right off shore by the big rock (El Peñon) and see all sorts of colorful fish.

Here are some of the photos from my day at the beach.

Sometimes it pays to pay a little more when having some printing done.
