Izzy and Ellie on holiday – Day 6 Playa de los Muertos

Playa de los Muertos

Today we headed east for a change to Playa de los Muertos between Agua Amarga and Carboneras.

Ellie by the sea

This long wide beach comprises tiny pebbles unlike the fine sand of our other beaches. The girls though found these fascinating and enjoyed collecting the prettier ones.

The rock pools at the end of the beach were another attraction.

Beautiful colours of the sea

The light and colours are beautiful here, the sea transparent and turning into veridian green near the rocks.

We also enjoyed watching the cargo ships going in and out of the port at Carboneras although this was of little interest to Izzie and Ellie as they live in Bristol, a port city.


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.
