Almerimar Spain Day 6

After the excitement of the previous two days, one would think that it was a boring day. I must disagree. Finally had a chance to actually go to the beach. Mind you, not to swim. It was quite windy, and finally I got to see that the sea actually had some waves.

After the beach we arrived at the marina, where I had a lot more time to spend taking photos.

Almerimar is a very nice and clean town. Although it fairly new, is still has a lot of spanish/european charm.

The marina in Almerimar is actually considered one of the largest in Spain. I found it really interesting that the boats stay moored for months or even longer. Maybe it's my ignorance, but I thought if one has a boat, one would take any chance they have to actually use it as a boat should be used. Obviously I was wrong.

Walking around I also noticed the different flowers and plans growing all over the place. Considering that this supposed to be a desert, it looks very green.

Also found this little house that was quite interesting. As you may notice, there are no windows. A monk lives there.

As I mentioned before in a previous post, Sandra Marshall has been doing a lot for the stray cats in Almerimar. So in the afternoon we went to a Rescue House to help with the cleaning and document some of the cats living there. You can find more about this wonderful endeavor here. This was an interesting experience to say the least.
