This corner of El Playazo beach had been taken over by the filming of the Spanish production Lejos del Mar for the last six weeks but now they have finished and the beach is  virtually deserted.

These two small buildings are the only ones on El Playazo beach and have been spruced up as part of the set for the film.

Their dazzling white walls against the blue sky make a typical Mediterranean scene.

This afternoon we seemed to be the only people enjoying the winter sun. The beach was deserted.

Marine asters

Behind the beach wild flowers are beginning to bloom. These marine asters looked pretty against the rocks.

Bermuda buttercups

Also Bermuda buttercups are coming into flower. Soon swathes of land in the valley behind the beach will be carpeted with their yellow flowers.

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.
