L'Ametlla de Mar  Catalunya Spain (almonds, olives and pines)

We fell in love with this fishing village, translated Almond of the sea which it really is. Our casa was about 10 minutes away in the hills which were clothed in almond groves, olive groves and pines.

How romantic, peaceful. I don't see anyone around. Love the reflection on the water and the lighting in this pic.

It was taken early morning after the main fishing boats had left. I had dropped Ian at work, building another house, and I was waiting until 9.30 when I began work in a local estate agent. The only people around would be the local villagers washing their steps and hanging their laundry out! At 4 in the afternoon the fisher wives would set up their parasols and tables here and sell beautiful fish and sea food. Extras would be kept for the local feral cats who all had boxes and bowls!

Well, that is another wonderful story Janey. I love that kind of lifestyle. Those boxes and bowls for feral cats, unbelievable.

Hello Dd....yes we miss it a lot, especially this time of year.....the light there was beautiful...and with the local stone being a soft golden colour it seemed to have a golden glow. We're lucky though we can return for hols and see friends which we hope to do in the Spring.
