What’s this about?
This is the Spanish website for Peter and Maureen Scargill. When in Spain we live in Galera in Andalusia (for clarify 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 something like 8 years or more and now we're spending a lot more time here.

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.

Fire in the Hole

Fire in the Hole - GaleraPeter ScargillWhen we got here a couple of weeks ago, there was an area of grass etc maybe 50ft long up the hill that was totally burned out..  in temperatures of 38 degrees it does not take much to start a fire.  

This morning I fixed the broadband then we headed off to see a couple we chatted with last night – I said I’d go look at his HI-FI as he was having a spot of bother with it. 

On the way, we spotted another fire starting just down the road… we saw a lady with a hose apparently unable to do anything with it, quickly followed by a guy with a hose who did know what to do – and quickly he and others put the fire out – but it could have been bad! 

RestaurantAs you can see, much of the shrubbery is dry as a bone and hence ready for a fire – it just takes one idiot with a cigarette…

Anyway, it’s been a good day, WIFI is working, we got to meet locals, found a new (for us) swimming pool and restaurant just outside of Huescar…. and there’s some thunder coming on which means probably a quick burst – and that’ll clear the humidity up!
