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 trip to Granada

Road to GranadaYesterday we took a trip out to Granada. Another 38 degrees day, perfectly clear skies – you couldn’t ask for more… took us not much more than an hour to drive down to Granada and we started with a trip to Macro – not something we’ll do again – waste of time.

Macro hasn’t been up to much in the UK for a while but here, it’s worse… fortunately nearby there’s an excellent Carrefour and a Brico-Depot and so after an hour or so the car was full (mainly thanks to Carrefour which has to be my all-time favourite store)!  We had some lunch and headed off slowly back up North… but not before noticing something that looked distinctly like a modern castle just off the motorway. Brico Depot

Breezeblock CastleArmed with sat-nav for safety we went off-road to discover a small suburb with some of the most delightful buildings I’ve seen in months. Here are a couple of examples, one looking like a castle (and there were several) and the other – well, I don’t know how to describe it other than “eastern”. REALLY nice.

Breezeblock Mosque?Absolutely marvellous….and just to round the day off we ended up stuck in a herd of goats. On our way back up to Galera we stopped briefly in Guadix – and I have to say, it looks like it is worthy of another visit. We popped into a local garden centre to get a cement tortoise for Maureen (for the wall) and then a quick look at the shops but Guadix is one of those cities that is just chocker full of side-streets with interesting-looking shops and restaurants and so it’s going I think to take a full day to give it the attention it deserves. Maybe next time we’re here.
