Tales of the Lecrin Valley

A personal view of life in an andalusian village.

What a strange year this has been as far as the weather is concerned!  But at last the real summer has arrived, there is no sign of cloud or rain in the forecasts and temperatures are well above 30ºC.  The sea is comfortable for an extended swim or snorkel and the beaches are choc-a-bloc at the weekends.  At least we are able to go to the beach in the afternoons after work on the odd afternoon and that is a great bonus.  Nothing better than a swim late afternoon and a beer and tapa as you watch the sunset over the sea.  Just like good old Blightey but here you can do it for four of five months of the year, not four or five days!
