Cumulus Cumulating

Apartment verandah faces west and a great place to have ones aperitif (local pate on chunks of freshly baked baguet, big fat olives, and a cheeky little rioja blanco) looking up over Gotmar Hill with great billowing cumulus clouds banking up, perhaps bringing some overnight rain?:

I couldn't find my Carmine Red Neocolour or I would have included that one too!

Please note: I am having so much difficulty posting anything using Blogger this is the very last. I'm off to seek more fertile ground, perhaps in Wordpress?

Cala San Vicente, Not!

Looming magnificently at the entrance to the cala are these ragged and rugged mountainous rock formations rising straight up from the purple sea. So first out of the pencil case is a lilac-purple felt pen and some scribbles across two landscape pages:

Should have left it at that but these two bikers turned up and so were added to the mix.

Obviously the sun was beating too strong on my napper and I forgot exactly where I was. This was actually Cala Molins!

Cala Molins

A day on the beach lying on a lounger under a straw umbrella with a mulitude of Life models and all for free!:

Except the loungers and umbrella were rented for 12 euros. Allowable expenses?

Goat on Gotmar Hill

It took me two days into the holiday to prise my favourite clutch pencil (the one I pinched from my brother 40 years ago and still has his initials on it) from my bulging pencil case and immortalised this billy goat standing high on a rock on Gotmar Hill as the cloud structures finally broke in the sky and him bleating down to his swooning hareem below:

A lovely white rioja helped enormously!
