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.

Mid-Summer Fun

Party ay BedRockFriday night we had a small party here at Bedrock – just a few friends over – sadly not enough room for everyone we know but we’ll make up for that at a later date. Cracking night as the weather was just right – I think we finally got to bed at 2am in the morning or so. Funnily enough, last night we met neighbours who we could not find to invite to our do and they just invited us over next week for their own party!

new side on pergola at BedrockWe had about 16 people over and had a great time but not before Dave and I had replaced a fence section and done some work on the Pergola – leading to me burning my head in the sun – which I’m still paying for. Some of us never learn.

Hotel Abadi - where the Sunday market is locatedSaturday was a relatively lazy day, time to catch up with emails etc., but Sunday morning we went off to Baza for the Sunday market – it was ok, not sure it was worth the trip other than to meet up with people – the hotel there serves a mean sandwich but the service was atrocious – there was one stand selling UK-type food – i.e. meat pies etc. which are very rare here – I bought a corned beef pastie and I have to say, nice try but next time putting some corned beef in it would be good. Essentially it was a potato pastie with a sample of corned beef. Maybe we’re in the wrong business!

Music in Galera on Sunday NightIn the evening we headed down to the Galera Medieval fair with neighbours and had another nice evening in town and once again the weather held, lots of people we know showed up, we didn’t stay out really late but it was still 25c near midnight with a nice breeze – lovely. All manner of entertainment including a band in the town square.

Today I have some work to do including various FSB short meetings – and Maureen has schoolwork to attend to – I suspect tonight will be a quiet night! At that point I’ll leave you with some pictures.
