The fine autumn weather continues so today we visited San Pedro.

As usual, we drove up the Rambla de las Aguillas and parked where the footpath begins. As you can see from the photo above, the countryside is so much greener now. This is not just a result of the storms a fortnight ago. Overnight condensation moistens the ground before the sun dries it out again.

The recent storms have done some damage to the cliff path so we had to take care descending to the cove.

The beach is much quieter now than in summer but, being Sunday, there were quite a few people enjoying the warm weather.

We have noticed that, this year, San Pedro has seemed much cleaner. This may be because the small hippy population have dug some chemical lavatories and erected notices like this one.

Although we have featured San Pedro many times on this blog there are always interesting subjects for photography.

The light is also different every time one visits. Today the soft autumn sunlight sparkling on the sea was particularly beautiful.

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.
