This cat just couldn’t look more relaxed as he watches the world go by on the Balcón de Europa in Nerja.
From what I can gather, all the wooden lifeguard towers remain out of commission apart from being used as poles for warning flags. This followed an incident on Burriana beach on July 4th when one of the towers collapsed, complete with lifeguard.
Not so busy on the Balcón de Europa in Nerja this afternoon, everyone down at the beach I would imagine. There was a very cute, and really young, poopy enjoying an outing.
Two short QuickVids taken on the Balcón de Europa on Monday. The South American groups have also suffered under the tough austerity measures, now reduced to one person.
A couple or three late evening rooftop shots. Capturing a sunset at the moment s not easy as the sun currently sets behind the Torrox hills and there are no clouds to add more colour. Same with the sunrise n a way, the sun comes up behind the hills rather than over the sea.
Another traditional local craft is, of course, hat making. Styled on the Asian ‘coolie’ headgear, but larger than the Mexican ‘sombrero’, these hats are ideal for combating the intense and searing heat of August in central and Southern Spain.
The BBQ’s were roaring away on Burriana beach – well, not on the beach itself of course, in the restaurants – with fish and paellas being the main order of the day. I have included a short paella video.
Burriana beach in Nerja was absolutely heaving today, the most packed I have seen it for many a year. Not easy to find a space to plant your parasol, despite the beach being 800 metres long and around 40 metres wide.
Suddenly, creeping through the hot, dry savannah….
A fair number of people out and about today and no silly people tying cases to benches and then going off for lunch!! Poor woman will never live it down, but she will no doubt be far more ‘aware’ from now on. Hopefully.
