In Andalucia they call late September El Veranillo de San Miguel (the little summer of Saint Michael.
Although officially we are now in autumn the weather is still sunny and warm with the temperature reaching 30c and the fair weather set to continue.

Throughout the summer nearly every day we have gone to our village beach at Las Negras to swim and relax for a few hours but today we ventured to El Playazo de Rodalquilar ten minutes drive down the coast.

A light Levante breeze was blowing which tempted this kite surfer on to the water.

Not only humans enjoy the beach. This little dog spent all his time in this rock pool fascinated by the marine life in it.

About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live in the little coastal village of Las Negras in the heart of the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.
