Refuse disposal in San Pedro

Today we walked to Cala San Pedro and sat near the end of the beach close to this little boat.

While we were enjoying a picnic lunch two German men appeared and loaded the boat with sacks of refuse. They then, with great difficulty, attached an outboard motor. Not happy with this they replaced it with another outboard and launched the boat into the sea.

Their dog joined them on the boat but then they had a problem starting the motor.

Eventually they fired it up and set off for Las Negras, no doubt to deposit the rubbish in the municipal bins. We were pleased that someone is making an effort to keep beautiful San Pedro tidy.

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 in the little coastal village of Las Negras in the heart of the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata. 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 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.
