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.

A Day in the Wild Old West

Mini-HollywoodAt last, after 2 days of wearing headphones (conference calls) I managed to get a real day of holiday. Somewhat under two hours away from Galera, near a little place called Tabernas which is just short of  Almeria on the N-340 there is an old cowboy set called Mini-Hollywood, now a theme park. It is, apparently the longest established of three theme parks nearby with the the other two, Western Leone and Texas Hollywood still part-working and it is where we spent our day today.

Graves in Mini-HollywoodMost of it comprises real’ish buildings that were actually used in films – and it all looks the part! From the minute you hand over your 16 Euros you feel you are part of Hollywood! It seems that over a hundred titles were at least partially filmed here!

Maureen and I with friend Fay chanced the 40 degree temperatures, armed with our bottles of water to visit the place – Maureen and Faystarting with lunch – which while not cheap – was a superb buffet as good as I’ve had anywhere – and after checking out this great theme park we went off to the adjoined zoo to see some of the furry animals – I have to say – an EXCELLENT way to spend a hot, sunny day!

More photos later – and here’s a short video  I’ve put together. Meanwhile, apparently, it poured rain in much of the UK…  just what you need to help the flu!
