Cala de Enmedio – 18th October

“There is a good deal of Spain which has not been perambulated. I would have you go thither.”: Doctor Johnson writing to Boswell in the 18th Century.

Today we visited Cala de Enmedio. To get to this beautiful cove you have to take the 7km dirt road to Cala del Plomo which is signposted off the road to Agua Amarga.

Park just before you reach Cala del Plomo and take the footpath on the left to the next Cove, Cala de Enmedio. It is about a 20 minute walk.

When we reached Cala de Enmedio at 12.30 there were only two other people on the beach. When we left three hours later there were six.It is now mid-October but the sun and sea are still warm and it is hard to imagine a more idyllic place as this on a day like today.

At either end of this crescent of soft sand rise imposing white cliffs which have been eroded into fascinating shapes. The contrast between the blues of the sea and sky, the yellow sand and the cliffs, is spectacular.

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.
