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 9 years or more and now we're spending a lot more time here.

A Busy Start to the Autumn

Chris and JinetteWe’ve had a very busy start this Autumn, with friends Chris and Jinette over for a visit. They arrived late last week and we took them down to the coast – to Nerja – enjoying the views of the viaducts and general scenery on the way down.

After a couple of great evenings with Chris, Jinette and our neighbours John and Julie, we headed back up the coast to drop them off at Alicante airport and took the opportunity to drop into Benidorm before heading home.

Here are some pictures we took along the way….

Building as yet un-opened in Benidorm

In the photo above you see an an amazing 60+ story building which apparently has never actually been occupied. A monument to great design and crap planning, what a view you’d have out of those windows at the top!

Benidorm

Benidorm seems a strange mix of really BAD buildings some of which are falling apart – and nice modern ones. There is certainly a buzz about the place and the seaside area is very pleasant – sadly the Brits who like to pretend they are on holiday in a hot Britain have brought things down to a low level in some parts with £2.50 fry-up breakfasts. Any unique Spanish character has been buried under this attempt to appease to the lowest level.

Beach

Interesting to compare the above with the absolutely marvellous Nerja…

Nerja

However, we had a great time throughout and hope to repeat the experience in the future.
