We've had a home in Spain for more than 14 years and it is now our permanent base though we retain a small home in the UK.

A Day of Pottery and Lakes, a Night of Fireworks

PotteryWe started yesterday off with a trip out to Purullena to do some pottery shopping after which we headed off to the lake. Click on (touch) photos to see larger versions if you’re interested. There are a bunch of pottery stores along the side of the road – if you’ve not been there – you won’t BELIEVE how much pottery is available.

After a slight spend there, Maureen and I headed off to Lake Negratin for a soak.

After an afternoon at the lake –  stunningly warm weather, stunningly cool water but sadly too many noisy dogs and kids (we must find another place to land – it’s a big lake, surely enough room for all) we went home for a while then late evening headed down to Galera town centre.

Setting upAt this time of the year, Galera always has a fair – and fireworks at midnight. Predictably the weather was excellent and we stopped at a friends’ place for drinks and to watch the midnight festivities – sadly I left the camera at home but the trusty Galaxy S4 managed to take some not unreasonable photos.

We took some pics well before midnight as they were setting up in the town centre, then after a superb snack went back up to La Posa and off to see friends – the pics you see below are from their place.
