Almerimar

Just a quick word of warning. Be careful if you go walking in the nature reserve. Our friend Sharon was walking her dogs in the nature reserve over the weekend when she came face to face with a wild boar.

Luckily she managed to collect up her dogs and get away from the animal reasonably quickly.

Collapsed Palm Tree On Golf Course - 29 Oct 18

I was down at the golf course this afternoon sorting out some bits and pieces. While I was there I was told about a collapsed palm tree in front of the clubhouse.

As you can see the very windy weather could have caused a big accident. Thank goodness nobody was near the palm tree at the time it fell down.

We were really busy over the weekend and earlier this week. So I have only just had time to check the Spanish newspaper sites for local news.

There is an article here on the Ideal site about the Almería Gourmet event in El Ejido last Saturday.

It links to a gallery of photos from the day that you can see here.

Read More for a Google translation of the article.

Thanks to Alan D for the photos above. There are a couple more in the Gallery.

It looks like the site of the old beach club on the Poniente promenade is going to be modernised at long last. The top photo is what it looks like now. The bottom two are of what it will look like, all being well.
