I though I would post a couple of pics of Salobreña from up the Monte, so that people that may be coming to the area could get a feel for just where things are geographically.

Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear.

To give you an idea, it takes about 10 minutes to drive from Salobreña to the golf region, and walking from La Caleta to the golf course is doable, but it better be your only activity that day.  If driving, you only need to go a little bit further to visit the bird marshes for some excellent quiet time and bird watching.

Entrance to La Caleta with all the new builds. Alert Marina on the way!

The blossoms will be gone before we know it.

Who can resist her?

You're not in Kansas anymore.

You can't make this stuff up.

For any of you that have ever been to Salobrena, you may have noticed the cane shacks along the beach between Salobrena and La Guardia.  If you are like me, you were probably dying to see what they look like inside.. Well here is your chance.. Each is different of course, some  are as well put together as a cottage, raised floors, beds, cooking facilities, the lot.  Others are rustic little party shacks, at least this one was.. so here is your first look at what the Spanish call a Choza.  Translated it just means hut.

Well having said that, I hope they don’t change the sign, it’s old, and it has character.  So many things about this place remind me of my childhood trips to the cottage on Lake Simcoe in Ontario.  In some ways it’s like going back in time about 40 years.  It’s simple here, people go to the beach in the morning and return at night.  The babies are naked and there are no ghetto blasters annoying everyone.  It’s just nice.  This sign is showing us to the beach in the little town of La Guardia which is right next to Salobreña, within walking distance.
