Balcon de Europa, Nerja

Out and About July 16th 2017

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.

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.

Playing with panoramas

Very pleasant on the Balcón de Europa this evening. Incidentally, the works being carried out near the viewpoint are not, as I assumed, related to drainage but are in preparation for the installation of the ship’s wheel which, until now, has been located by the terrace of Kronox cafe in front of the Town Hall.

After a few days of rain, high winds, heavy seas and a temperature drop that had many of us looking to the hills for signs of snow, Sunday was a welcome return to milder times. The centre of town was relatively packed and there were plenty of people sunning themselves on the beaches or swimming in calm seas.

Move along

Sometimes the logic is hard to find, let alone follow. It was a fairly hot midday on the Balcón de Europa in Nerja when Officer Shakey McShakeyhead appeared on the scene and shook his head at the girl quietly bending wire into interesting objects of various kinds.
