Tape Arte on avenida Castilla Perez has fallen by the wayside, although it did last a fair old time – relatively speaking. The trees in Plaza Cavana, Nerja, in keeping with those in much of the rest of the town, have undergone a slight trim.
After some light overnight rain, Sunday was quite warm but very windy at times. There were a lot of people about in the centre of Nerja, including a couple of large tour groups. The palm trees were getting quite a buffeting.
The weather is still generally pretty good, warm during the day, so no real excuse for not taking down the remaining Christmas decorations to be found on several streets in the town. Most are the weird rectangular ‘bed-base’ type with strings of lights instead of springs.
The lights are up and lit in various parts of town, there are some nice Poinsettias on the Balcón de Europa and festive events of all types are on the increase as the long Christmas season – lasting until January 6th 2017 – begins to gather momentum.
Here is a short (30 second) video of Calahonda beach, Nerja, taken this afternoon.
A Collared Dove looking down on Calahonda beach, Nerja, towards the end of the day. The area is in desperate need of a bit of TLC after the forced closure, and subsequent deterioration, of the very popular Papagayo chiringuito.
There are no prestigious ‘Blue Flags’ for Nerja for the third year running due, in the main, to the lack of a functioning sewage treatment system as required by European regulations.
Quite crowded on the Balcón de Europa today and a fair few people on the beach and some venturing into the water.
Two small fishing boats still survive on Calahonda beach, Nerja. The feral cats love it when the boats come in and they are suitably rewarded with scraps from the day’s catch.
I took this photo of one of the small coves just past Calahonda beach in Nerja and it was only when I looked at it later I saw that there were, in fact, five people in the shot, and not three as I thought at first glance.
