Friday Night with Friends

Friday turned out to be a busy day - big local market in the morning, a drive along the coast in the afternoon and a meal out with friends in the evening! So not a lot done to report about here but I did manage to squeeze in an hour of crochet.
This is the penultimate block for my Lily Pond blanket at the beginning of the session.


I finished it and made a start on the last block too.



Cant wait to finish it and complete putting all the blocks together.

We have now been in Spain a week and have been enjoying the sunshine. There has also been some much needed rain but fortunately overnight. We have mostly been visiting favourite places but on Thursday found a 'new to us' beach south of San Jose about an hour from here. We followed signs through the town and down a dusty track to find this beautiful bay.

Los Genoveses
 
There were a few people around but mostly we had the beach to ourselves for a blowy but very enjoyable walk.
 
 
There were lots of these jellyfish on the beach.
 
 
I will spare you the picture of a large dead fish - we think possibly a porpoise - washed up on the shore.
 
 
When we returned to our car we saw this goatherd passing through with his flock.
 
 
The only domesticated animals that we see here are goats - there are no sheep or cattle. Yesterday we saw a herd of goats let loose in a field where lettuce had recently been cut, they were having a wonderful time!
 
Here is a view of Los Genoveses looking back from the track.

 
And a local windmill - there are a lot of these around, it's a windy area.
 
 
I am off to visit a few blogs - have a great week.
