A fairly short Feria procession made its way through the streets of Nerja on Tuesday with the newly elected Feria Queen adorning one of the floats.
It doesn’t appear to have been covered by the local press but one of the quaint fishermen’s cottages burned to the ground on Sunday night. Shame, and now another eyesore along with the derelict old Papagayo restaurant.
The annual Feria, longer this year, is in full swing with things happening on the Balcón de Europa, Plaza España and at the feria ground itself. All very colourful.
Sea mists roll in pretty quickly and this morning was no exception.
It was the first time I had seen a peanutty cake in Anahi, Puerta del Mar, so just had to try it. Very creamy top layer with whole – well, half – peanuts embedded in it, very tasty and very filling as one might expect.
Sunday saw the holding of the 61st Carrera Urbana Feria de Nerja ‘Trofeo Juan Carlos Salcedo’ (road race) and the 33rd Trofeo Marcha Villa de Nerja ‘Memorial Tomás Santaolalla’ (walking race), attracting both a large number of entries and a host of spectators.
Running and racing was the order of the day today in the build-up to Nerja Feria 2017. Runners and walkers of all ages took part in the event.
I turned the corner and there was Lola out for a stroll. A very friendly, albeit large, piggy who enjoys her walks and she responds to her name, running (or waddling) back to her owner when he calls her.
Nice smooth, creamy and very tasty chocolate cake with a cherry on top, washed down with a coffee at Salvador on calle San Miguel, Nerja. Just €2.75.
A few moggies down by the non-existent river, including a group of kittens in one of the small farms/orchards although they were in deep shade so no photos of them this time.
