San Jose and Los Genoveses

San Jose Marina

The sun continues to shine in Almeria and so we decided to head for the beautiful bay of Los Genoveses. On the way, we stopped at San Jose and walked across the main beach to the marina.

The busy little harbour, as usual, was full with yachts, fishing boats and pleasure craft and it is always a pleasure to stroll around here looking at the boats and nautical activity.

There are not many tourists staying in the resort at the moment, as you can tell from this photo of the main beach.

At Los Genoveses, we walked the length of the bay, had a picnic and swam in the sea, which is still warm.

Again, the beautiful beaches were uncrowded although the temperature was 27C.

By the car park behind the beach was a herd of white goats. We have often seen this herd and have been informed that they are a special breed unique to the area.

On the way back, we passed them again making their way home over the hillside against the dramatic backdrop of the Sierra de Cabo de Gata.

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.
