Sunday in Benalmadena

Some beaches in Benalmadena (Andalusia, province of Malaga, Spain) has something that Torremolinos does not have: a sea ground with stones, so that the sea can be crystal clear. Also, more birds can be observed there.
I wanted to try my new camera yesterday, this is what I saw:

Where is spring?

It was difficult to concentrate on creating art those last days, so much translation work to finish, many errands...
Waiting for a real spring that takes long to arrive this year (yes, we had some summer days already, now winter again, just wonder where spring is hiding). Next Sunday, we will have to advance our clocks again (unfortunately in my opinion, but I know it is very controversial and complex). Maybe spring will come then.

Running

Last year in March, it was Easter and we had some free days. Now, winter is still here (I still need my Icelandic jumper) and we will have to work one more month before Easter is coming. I am longing for more light and higher temperatures.

More Andalusian mountains

If you come to Malaga, Guadix (province of Granada) and the Tabernas Desert (province of Almería) are farther away, but definitely worth to visit. In Guadix, you will see cave-dwellings, and Tabernas is the filming location of many western movies. Enjoy!

Andalusia Day

Today is February 28, a holiday here in Andalusia ("Andalusia Day" or "Día de Andalucía" in Spanish). Banks and most shops are closed (schools are closed the whole week), and people generally spend this free day with family and friends.
I wanted to use this opportunity to show some impressive mountains we have nearby. The best known is perhaps El Torcal de Antequera, with it surreal rock formations. But there are many more beautiful spots in this autonomous region. Enjoy!

Winter fruits

Last night, we suffered a long and severe thunderstorm with heavy rain (red weather warning for the coast). Of course, the dog was so scared that we did not sleep either. Now, it is "only" windy, with increasing waves that give the blue Mediterranean a brown look. 

I wanted to create a peaceful, harmonious work: when the sun is shining, winter can be so nice in this part of Spain. ;-)
