This morning I went to Almeria to deal with some red tape and surprisingly got through this quickly which gave me time for a stroll in the city centre.
The Rambla de Belen, stretching from the port into the heart of the city, is a lovely, palm lined avenue. Here the citizens can enjoy a paseo or just pass some time relaxing and chatting on the benches.
Cyclists too are able to use the wide avenue.
As I approached the sea I noticed that there was a lot of activity on the little beach between the marina and the ferry port.
School children, I presume enjoying their sports period, were playing netball or messing about in kayaks.
This was a colourful sight against the backdrop of the blue sky and sea and dominating this scene is the old iron jetty that used to carry a continuation of the railway line out to sea.
