I have finished my Winter Crazy block apart from a spider in the web and I did not have the right beads with me for that.
Here are a couple of close-ups.
Just a few photographs from our time in Spain.
The beautiful bay of Las Negras
And the unspoilt El Playaza with it's privately owned and inhabited castle.
The rocks by the castle are full of fossils and shells.
In this secluded cove we watched a Gannet swooping and diving over the sea.
These gold mines at Rodalquilar were started by the Romans and only closed in the 1960's -
they have an amazing view of the sea.
Las Sirenas, site of the Cabo de Gata lighthouse. A favourite spot for viewing seabirds and this year our fist sight of a Trumpeter Finch. They are usually found in North Africa but there is a small colony living near the lighthouse.
Flamingos on the Cabo de Gata salt lakes.
The view from Cabrera mountain across to Mojacar bay.
Nijar, famous for it's woven rugs, pottery and baskets.
Back to Cabo de Gata and these colourful toilets caught my eye. We sat at a weathered table with mismatched dining chairs on the beach for coffee.
