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.
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.
A longer Nerja Feria this year, running from October 7th to 12th 2017, with the Gala and Election of the Feria Queen on the 7th and performances by La Húngara (8th), Semper Asi (9th), Demarco Flamenco (10th), Andy & Lucas (11th) and Los Soles (12th).
Can’t get bored with being bitten to pieces by mosquitoes. I don’t think there are that many of them about but those that are seem to have a voracious appetite. Slightly cooler now…at times.
These two examples of ‘street art’ are on the shutters of a shop in calle Puerta del Mar in the centre of Nerja. The first, certainly, has been there for many years. While I was eyeing up the shot, a (well known) local stopped and asked if he could make a couple of comments (as he is wont to do) and I replied, ‘of course’.
These pimped-out hoverboards have pretty nifty acceleration – and good brakes!. There was an accidental collision between two siblings, the other one being on a small bike, and a few tears although you never know with siblings just how ‘accidental’ it really was.
Strolling down to the Balcón de Europa I fully expected to find that the ‘love lock’ I noticed the other day had been removed. Quite the opposite, there were two more on the railings!
