Well I got a very pleasant surprise when I opened my blog page this morning to post the photos that I had taken yesterday.  We are having beautiful fall weather, and with it beautiful stunning skies.  Anyway back to my pleasant surprise.


I am currently sitting at 99,999 viewers as of right now.. it was so momentous, I just had to take a photo!  It’s been 6 years since I started the blog, and recently it’s been quite difficult to come up with new things to write about.  Salobreña and the area are really quite  special, but it’s difficult to be fresh after 5 years, but I am going to continue to try.

Who will be 100K, if it’s you, please tell us where you are from!

Now the big news, we are only days away from the annual Romeria here in Salobreña.  To me this is the biggest day of the year here and one of the biggest parties going.  I never miss it.  There is food and music and traditional dress and horses and fireworks and you name it, it is happening on the beach on Sunday.  If you are here, be sure to get your program from the tourist office, you won’t want to miss a thing.  To see just what will be going on, check the archives for October’s past in or around the 7th of October.  You won’t want to miss this!

Now, back to those skies!

Brrr but it is a chilly spring that we are experiencing.  Day after day of clouds and cold weather, the good news though, is that the skies have finally opened up and it is raining, that means clear blue skies are on the way.

Shops are closed tomorrow, May Day so shop til ya drop today if you need to.
