It was a beautiful Sunday evening, lots of people and plenty going on all over the place. Why, on holiday, does almost every woman appear to need to buy a couple of bags and most men seem to need a stock of belts?
It started with one guy, then became a duo when his regular partner arrived and finally became a band when members of the public joined in for a few songs. They gathered a good crowd and hopefully made a few bob into the bargain.
Sunday evening got busier and busier on the Balcón de Europa as people gathered to watch the passing and arrival at Calahonda beach of the Virgen del Carmen flotilla. Monday evening, by the way, is free sardines and music by Duo Compas in Plaza Fabrica de los Cangrejos, all part of the Virgen del Carmen festivities.
Wow, someone must have actually discovered a way to clean clothes so they don’t have to be discarded after a single use. Must find out more about this, could save me a fortune. Or maybe make me a fortune if I can come up with some sort of automated process…
For those who like cycling, the 72nd edition of the Vuelta Ciclista a España will be passing through Nerja on August 31st.
Detunda is the ancient Roman name for Maro, which is where we find the recently opened Jardín botánico Detunda-Cueva de Nerja. It cost three million to construct, took three years to complete and then a further three years to open to the public.
Over the years I have always recommended Meson de Antonio in calle Diputación, Nerja, as being one of the top half a dozen establishments in general terms and one of the top two or three when it comes to a good steak. Having not been there for many moons, I thought it high time to make sure that it was still up there with the best in readiness for the next ‘where can I get a good steak?’.
Quite a few musicians around at the moment, most who have become regulars since completing their auditions and paying their tax for the privilege. There are still the odd buskers appearing, but no doubt that will change when the permanent police presence on the Balcón de Europa begins if the past couple of years are anything to go by.
A lot of people on Calahonda beach on Sunday and quite a few on El Salon. Nice calm seas.
It suddenly clouded over on Wednesday afternoon and there was even the odd spot of rain. This became a quick shower early on Thursday morning with the skies very overcast.
