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.

January 2024 in Southern Spain

Looking at this scene, you could be forgiven for thinking this was autumn or spring… nope – early January up near Guardamar – driving around nearby seaside towns such as Benijofar with our friends Rolly and Sarah.

Below, a spot of breakfast at the American diner in Benijofar… for reference, I didn’t have the “Buster”…

The American diner at the coast - Benijofar - very nice breakfast

I pan to revisit Benijofar as soon a possible – early February, weather permitting. It is so easy to take for granted the winter weather on the east coast of Spain but I’m currently back in the frozen wastes of the Northeast of England – and trust me it is cold and generally wet and windy here.

And anyway, if you have a car and are travelling down south from Alicante airport, the area is a no-brainer and far more interesting than the motorway route unless you’re in a mad rush.

I plan to get one of those American Diner milkshakes asap… having just been to Burger King whose milkshakes are fairly dire – and having also recently tried to get a shake from various McDonalds without success (for many years a favourite with me – I’d get just the shake – today, the machines are invariably out of order), what do we have to lose 🙂
