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.

If you're familiar with what3words, we live at dossier.bath.sawn

Grapes Ahoy

GrapevineFinally the first grapevine is starting to look serious… mind you it’s a good job it’s been rainy as my watering system had fallen to bits on this particular plant.

A lovely day here in Galera – could have been sunnier at times but most of the day it was clear skies and maybe 25c – not enough to warrant a trip to the lake but fine for getting jobs done along with the odd spot of sunbathing.

Tomorrow I’ve a brief trip to pick up Maureen after some shopping, the list for which is growing by the minute then we’re off to a BBQ at night.

Weather at the coast is apparently marvellous so I may set off extra early – there’s a rather nice coffee stand just outside of San Javier airport. That and a spot of shopping at the REALLY large Chinese store down there.

Got some good advice on weed-killing today, apparently the weedkilling (herbiceda) stuff here called “Glyfos” is cheaper and more powerful than the UK and now I know where to get it… watch out, dandelions….
