Cala del Plomo

Cala del Plomo

Making the most of the fine weather, we are continuing our exploration of beaches of the Cabo de Gata. This morning we headed for Cala del Plomo, a bay we have never visited before, which is signposted on the road between Fernan Perez and Agua Amarga. From here you have to drive down an unmade track for 7km before you arrive at the beach.

Enjoying the surf

There are better and more accessible beaches on the Cabo de Gata but Cala del Plomo seems quite popular and this may be because, judging from the amount of camper vans behind it, of the attraction of free camping.

Breaking waves

There was quite a lot of surf here which, after days of swimming in calm seas, made a change and also offered dramatic pictures of waves breaking against the rocks..

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.
