To show more beach shots would be repetitive, but the afternoon light on the mountains, as the low sun casts its shadows, is beautiful at this time of year.
These photos were taken in El Valle de Rodalquilar.
To amuse the visitors, the bars in Las Negras have been offering live music or other attractions. The bar “La Malafama” advertised a Hindu buffet. The Spanish do not know how to make a curry and we were intrigued to see what would be offered. Surprisingly, the buffet was delicious and authentic. The Spanish woman who had worked so hard to prepare all the dishes had worked at Mother Theresa’s in Kolkata where she had learned the arts of Indian cuisine.
On Saturday morning, I decided to scale the “mountain” in front of our house.
It is of no great height, but the final metres were quite demanding and scary.
I carried a little camera in my pocket to record the views. Inland, the landscape seems unmarked by civilisation.
Saturday was another beautiful day. In the afternoon, two little girls found an octopus in the rock pools of El Playazo. They were very relaxed with handling the creature.
A small crowd gathered to observe their antics. As usual in this area, naked and fully-clothed people stood together totally regardless of the others’ appearance.
Today was fine again and we walked over the cliff path from Las Negras via Cala El Cuervo to El Playazo. While snorkeling I spotted this star fish on the sea-bed.
This last photo is of Las Negras from the footpath above el Cuervo as the shadows begin to lengthen.
