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.

A Day in the Oven – Lake Negratin at 42c

Negratin from the opposite end to normalAfter a very pleasant evening last night (we ended up having a pizza locally and chatting with friends) we had a rather late start due to some folk overdoing it the night before… and headed off this morning to Baza for some supplies before heading off to Lake Negratin where we spent much of the day as the temperatures rose toward and then exceeded 40c.

After spending the afternoon paddling around and using the inflatable boat as a sun-lounge, we headed off at around 4pm – at which time the temperature was hitting 42c – a record certainly for our trips here, around the back end of Negratin and discovered a new beach (with new road) we’d previously not come across. The photos here were taken at that beach though we were not about to hang around too long as it was simply too hot.

The scenery and colours were amazing and we’ll be back soon to take another look. Even at 7pm this evening it was still 36c outside – and this is DESPITE a slight haze – thankfully the cave is relatively cool!

Tomorrow the market in Huescar.
