Quite windy, and cool, in exposed areas, not too bad in the shade. Still a fair number of people in shorts (we know them as ‘tourists’), although most tend to be also wearing several layers of clothing including a thick jacket.
‘Local Produce’ or ‘Artisan’ has really expanded in the past couple of years, new places opening all the time and one of the latest being on calle El Barrio. They don’t all make it but at least they are giving it a go.
An alternative to a wide angle lens (especially if you don’t have one) is to stitch together a few shots in a panorama. Makes an interesting shot. These were on the Balcón de Europa, Nerja – one in each direction.
October 31st and November 1st sees the annual Fiesta de la Castaña y el Boniato Maroween 2017, a combination of two great fiestas

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!
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.
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.
Shades of August on the Balcón de Europa, Nerja, on Sunday with a veritable throng of humanity milling around. Holy Communion services resulted in large crowds around the iglesia El Salvador and these were augmented by a number of large tour groups visiting the town.
The new slimline bins, complete with ashtrays, now adorning the Balcón de Europa are probably more aesthetically pleasing than the ones they replaced and one cannot compliment the local authority enough for paying attention to even the smallest details in the quest to refine and improve the image of the town for visitors.
