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.

The Summer of Sun

26c in the shade in San JavierWe’re here! Arrived last night (Sunday), beautiful night, got into the (Murcia) airport around 7pm Spanish time and headed straight off down the road (maybe 10 minutes drive) to San Javier and to the shopping Centre which was heaving with happy shoppers (take note, lazy MetroCentre which will be more or less dead at that time of night on a Sunday).

Eroski shoppingThis morning we’ve been checking what repairs need doing – always on-going in a cave-home and re-arranging the furniture to give me a little more room to work (I’ve plans to work on some solar projects while I’m here and later in August of course I need to video conference back to the UK).

We’re off now for a brief trip to nearby Huescar for some paint, an extension and other general goodies and to see if anyone has a solar water-fountain following up my inspirational idea that moving water might keep the wasps occupied instead of invading the hot-tub (or as it’s used here – the cold-tub – it’s warm already and we’ve not put the heater on yet).

And that’s it, perhaps a pizza tonight and tomorrow there is some repairing to do.
