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 more than 14 years and are currently working on making the country our permanent base.

Blisteringly Hot July in Andalucia

If I had to get out of bed and travel to the office I’d be unhappy but as we’re not doing that, we’re making the best of the sun and yesterday visited one of very few open lakes. The locals must be spooked as there were only two other couples anywhere in view in the morning and ultimately there were just the four of us with a large lake all to ourselves. We got some relaxing swimming in. I even thought it might be good drone weather – that’s what I get for thinking – first attempt I lost a bolt – that’ll be fun to replace.

One of the nearby lakes here in Southern Spain - beautiful water - levels are down a lot, sadly, thanks to inefficient water use.

Still, we had a very nice morning followed by a light lunch at a nearby hotel – sitting outside, naturally. This water is unbelievably nice – still very low compared to a few short years ago. We can only hope it gets replenished over the winter. In the meantime, it is refreshingly cool instead of just plain cold.

Enjoying a rare triup to the lake

The land I’m standing on, no more than a couple of years ago was under water. As for our friend’s dogs, they loved it. Should have taken our cats but it was a bit hot in the car for them. I can see a return trip in my future, armed with our blow-up boat.
