Las Negras in Autumn

Rambla del Cuervo

This morning we walked down the Rambla del Cuervo which links Las Hortichuelas with Cala del Cuervo, the next cove to Las Negras. It is a pleasant stroll through an oasis of palm trees, and we saw many small birds and quite a few butterflies, mostly swallowtails.

When we reached the cove, we saw that there were a few people swimming off the beach and the sea did indeed look tempting.

We then took the cliff path to Las Negras which was looking a picture in the autumn sunshine.

Restaurante Las Barcas

The Restaurante Las Barcas, were we had dinner on Monday night, was busy with tourists.

We walked back to the car through the main street which was colourful with its profusion of sunshades and flowering shrubs.

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.
