This morning, though, the wind dropped and we enjoyed our morning walk over the cliffs and along the beach.
There’s an interesting maritime flowering plant – hoary stock – growing along the shore. The conical clusters of pretty pink flowers are reminiscent of lilac blossom.
After taking the dogs home, we walked back to the village which was coming back to life at midday. A photographer was showing off his photos and a local artist was painting a watercolour beside the beach.
Sunbathers were taking advantage of the shelter provided by old cottages to take some rays on the wall by the beach or ….
…. stretch out between the boats on the sand.
There are several good tapas bars in Las Negras and today we tried Malafama. Here, we were given with our first drink a delightful tapa consisting of mushroom, vegetables and pine nuts topped with a creamy goats’ cheese. The second tapa was equally delicious and was a mixture of spicy chorizo and sultanas. It was accompanied by a dish of sliced tomatoes dressed with seasoning and olive oil.
Most serious diners, though, were as usual enjoying fresh fish at Cacho’s ‘Las Barcas’ restaurant where they have just constructed a new summer terrace on the beach below.
