Sun, sea and rain

Friday

Severe weather warnings, so we set off early back down the mountain, through thunderstorms, streams on the road and minor landslides. The intention was for a few days on the beach on the coast in Nerja, but it's too wet for most of the planned activities. It could be worse though - BBC news on floods in Spain.

We are staying at the modern Parador de Nerja. The Paradores are a chain of state-run luxury hotels, usually in restored historic buildings. We'll be trying out more of them in Ronda, Jaén and on our return to Granada.


Saturday

Plans for sun-bathing, kayaking and swimming are being rewritten here on the Costa del Soggy. We're taking the opportunity to catch up on reading and postcard-writing.
