What’s this about?
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 Ending

HailstonesSunday August 28th 2011: Apart from a few seconds in the morning, for just about the time since we arrived in Southern Spain this summer, not only did it rain…  and suddenly at that, but as we sat having our dinner in Huescar (thankfully inside a restaurant) we saw hailstones the size of peas (click on the photo to enlarge and see the hailstones on the road), for just a short while and then it was all over. In the process I captured one of the best sunsets yet (see next blog item).

Monday: On our last morning, the love affair with the puppy ended as he ripped one of our plants to pieces. We started our long journey back to the UK at 8am, went off into Galera for coffee followed by a trip to the bank and then we started our long journey to our next stop, Zaragoza.

Days to Go

tmp2346With only days to go, the new Habland broadband is working a treat – and my new iPhone software gives me a lot more control over the cameras, so all’s well in Spain and I’m bringing new cameras with me as the existing ones have little coloured marks no doubt due to being cheap Chinese rubbish!

Weather here in the UK is actually startlingly good for a change – no less than 22 degrees outside – a far cry from 35C which I believe it’s going to be this weekend in Galera – just the job for swimming.

Boatload of meetings then we start our long journey late in the week. Can’t wait…
