Izzy and Ellie on holiday – Day 4 Las Sirenas and El Faro de Cabo de Gata

El Faro de Cabo de Gata

This morning we took the girls to the south eastern corner of Spain, El Faro de Cabo de Gata.

The lighthouse overlooks the craggy rocks, Las Sirenas.

Lover's lock

Traditionally lovers attach a padlock with their names on to the railings and throw the keys into the sea below.

Izzy and Ellie were fascinated by this.

As always the girls wanted to go to the beach but it was too windy along the stretch of sands between the Faro and San Miguel so we stopped at El Playazo de Rodalquilar on the way home.

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 pn a small farmer the town of Alhabia in the Alpujarra Almeriense in the Province of Almeria. 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 portraiture and 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.
