On day three, Sandra and me went to El Ejido to run some errands. El Ejido is a an much older town than Almerimar. We did visit a few places, like the main town square, and visited different shops in the area of the main square.

I think the highlight of the excursion to El Ejido was the town market. It's a round building with all kinds of market stalls, from fresh fish, meats to fruits and vegetables. It's quite an amazing sight.

We returned from El Ejido in the early afternoon. Again on the balcony of Sandra and Chris's apartment I hooked up my 400mm zoom lens and scanned the town of Almerimar for some interesting things to photograph. I found these interesting looking orange tv antennas.

Also managed to snag a little portrait of Chris, while he was working on his computer. I really like this picture, and I think it works really well in B&W.

We also did a little errand to feed some stray cats, which job Sandra really took to heart. It is really awsome what Sandra is doing for these abandoned creatures. I had a chance to capture "The Big Daddy", who allegedly is the father of many little stray kittens in Almerimar. As you can see he's the boss, the big kahuna.

After all these errands and little jobs Chris and me took a drive to a small castle in Guardia Viejas.

This is more of a bastion than a castle, but still very nicely restored and presented. We tried to get there for the sunset, but our timing was a little off, plus with construction around the castle we got a little lost.
