And many thanks to Anthea for hosting this linky again despite suffering from a Western Australia heatwave!
If anyone has an EPP project on the go then please do link up with Anthea - the more the merrier!
I brought my box of hexies with me and have been basting a few here and there! But I also brought my swap hexies for February to work on and these are now complete and ready to post.
These are off to Australia
And these to the UK
It took us two days to drive down to our apartment here on Vera Playa, Almeria Province. On the way we stopped at an old mill about an hour south of Zaragoza. A family run hotel - simple but clean and excellent food. Part of the old mill machinery still works - just for show, not to mill - and the owner is happy to switch it on for visitors to see.
The road from Zaragoza to Valencia is called the Autovia Mudejar, the bridges decorated with Mudejar stars and related sculptures. This George and Dragon is a favourite of mine standing guard over the motorway.
Our apartment is a five minute walk from the sea and this laguna which is always full of birds.
Behind me as I took the photograph is an excellent restaurant and several bars and the promenade going south takes us to Garrucha in just 20 minutes. We like to walk there along the beach and back along the promenade.
From the balcony outside our sitting room we look down onto a lovely green walkway between apartment blocks. This is looking north
In the distance you can see the Cabrera mountains behind Mojacar.
As you can see virtually all the apartments are empty at this time of year - except of course the one whose balcony is directly opposite ours!
I love the way the orange trees are pruned into wheels here
and the beautiful bougainvillea which are in flower. This red one near our apartment is particularly striking.
And yes! I have been working in my journal - here is a page of prints I made based on the Mudejar star
plus a few beach finds.
Wishing you all a great week and I'm looking forward to catching up with all the other PYT posts here
