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 Tuesday Break at the Coast

After enjoying the fireworks over the weekend in Galera, yesterday (Monday) I did as sadly life insists I must – I got lots of business done – but today we headed off to the coast. We started our trip in Galera, drove through through Orce, then (the somewhat deserted) Maria, Velez-Blanco, Velez-Rubio and onto the coast.

Seafront imageryWe had a brief trip through Lorca where I managed to get a somewhat half-hearted (but free) repair to my specs – before heading off through Aguilas and on through San Juan de Los Terreros to ultimately reach Cuevas e Almanzora (Dennis if you’re looking in we didn’t have your phone number and assuming Angie is in the UK) before ultimately heading back, stopping briefly at Velez Rubio to show Marsha the castle (which was closed). Along the coast there are some incredible variations in architecture – WELL worth seeing – some of this stuff is worth forcing down the throats of Britain’s somewhat lack-lustre building designers (though I’d not want our lot to copy the building practices).

Buildings near AguilasIn the process we wandered around the back of Vera – and some of the natural sights there are fabulous – fruits I’ve only ever seen in supermarkets or on TV! We just picked roads at random – on the assumption that worse-case the sat-nav would get us out of a mess – which it did.


Velez BlancoWe finished the early evening with a trip to the Galera Hotel before coming home (to find no post – again). The girls are watching a movie, I’m doing the blog.

Still watching TV awaiting more images from the Mars explorer – the most impressive thing the human race has ever landed on another planet. Meanwhile Spain has it’s own impressive sights.. album update here..

Tomorrow more important stuff to do – but Thursday, we’re back a the coast for some sunbathing!
