No boats to San Pedro

There was a disaster on the beach at Las Negras last week when three small boats were destroyed by fire. Two of the boats were water taxis to San Pedro. This photo was taken on Thursday morning.

We have enjoyed a beautiful weekend but visitors have not been able to get to San Pedro by boat. There are plenty of little fishing boats on the beach, as you can see from this photo taken on Sunday morning, but no water taxis.

Usually San Pedro is busy on a Sunday but we decided to walk there over the cliffs hoping it would be quiet, and it was.

As you can see from the photos, there were very few people on the beach. Maybe the hot weather discouraged people from walking there.

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.
