This is Peter and Maureen Scargill's Spanish website. We live in Galera in Andalusia (for clarity, that is the English spelling - Mid-Spain they spell it Andalucia and pronounce it "And-a-loo-thee-a").

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.

Find out more about this by reading through the blog entries, menu-accessible pages and archives if you're interested! Welcome to Peter and Maureen's Spanish website.

Another Sunny Day in Spain

Overlooking nearby cavesWell, not quite that sunny, we had the odd cloud today, but as it was still 36 degrees, we went off to the open air pool at Fuencaliente for a swim. Not the best pool base, being mud, but a great pool and full of pretty large fish – by which I mean anything from a few inches to approaching 2ft long and hundreds of them. Still, we hadn’t heard of anyone getting toes bitten and so a couple of hours later we emerged feeling slightly tanned but nice an cool, to spend an hour or so driving around the area to check out the adjoined restaurant and further up the road, the cave bar El Alcadema… more on that when we pay them both a proper visit.

I actually spent part of the day sitting in front of the computer battling with tech support… I’m beginning to wonder if there is such a thing in the modern world as tech SUPPORT as against people who make life harder…  meanwhile the hot tub here is giving us problems, one of the pumps won’t turn off and the pool support people thought it was a relay… but if you turn the pool off then on – it takes minutes before the pump kicks in – so much for that theory… either way its running constantly which can’t be a good thing. Leaving it off overnight… tomorrow is another day… at least the broadband’s been fine since I sorted the connector out.

Got my new Spanish dictionary – £17.99 for the iPad and iPhone (different versions for each but all in the one price) – Collins – and it’s excellent – 300,000+ words and the audio version of every one – including a complete cross-index and it works offline – huge.. I suspect this might make life easier over here.
