Summer Sunday at San Pedro

Cala de San Pedro this morning

Sunday is the busiest day for the beaches of the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata when holiday makers are supplemented by day visitors from the towns inland. San Pedro is a good option for avoiding the crowds.

Access to this idyllic cove is by boat or an hour long walk in the heat over the cliffs from Las Negras and, although the water taxis bought visitors from Las Negras and yachts moored in the bay, we encountered very few walkers when we set out this morning.

The sea was calm and clear, perfect for swimming and the best conditions so far this year.


We think these photos capture the atmosphere.


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.
