Today we visited Cala de Enmedio. This beautiful beach can be reached by driving down a 7km unmade track off the Fernan Perez – Agua Amarga road to Cala del Plomo and then a twenty minute walk along a footpath.

The landscape is much greener now and once again we saw Urginea maritime with its white flowers.

Along the path again we found clumps of Viola arborescens.

Although it was quiet, there were a few other walkers heading for the beach to enjoy the autumn sunshine.

The water was crystal clear and still warm enough for a leisurely swim.

One of the striking features of Cala de Enmedio are the white cliffs at each end of the beach.

These have been eroded into fascinating shapes and make for interesting photographs.

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.
