I popped down to our nearest beach, El Playazo, to escape the heat inland and have a quick swim this afternoon.
Although the beach was not crowded offshore a number of yachts bobbed idly on the Mediterranean.
Now that high summer is here they are leaving their haven in San Jose marina to cruise the beautiful coastline of the Cabo de Gata.
Stunning features of our coast are the colours and clarity of the sea. I digitally remastered this photo of the waters in a little creek at the end of the beach to accentuate the light and colours of the sea.
