Bodega Dominio Buenavista 

We are leaking a bit of FGS news. We can now confirm that the first FGS trip to a bodega this year will take place on 29 September 2012 and the society will be visiting Bodega Dominio Buenavista in Ugijar.

Mr Preident and Ms Treasurer are sorting out the details of the day at the moment. It is hoped that full details will be published soon on the FGS site.

Jacqui and I have already visited the bodega earlier this year and we can recommend it as a very good place to visit.

It has been a pretty busy Tuesday. Some good golf for Jacqui and myself followed by various bits and pieces this evening.

All being well we will try to add some more stuff to the site tomorrow.

Thanks to Antonio Fornieles, the manager of the AR hotel, for being a real gentleman and helping Jacqui today.

Jacqui found out that the car had a puncture when she was collecting the list for Tuesday golf. Antonio was coming out of the clubhouse and saw Jacqui. He arranged for someone to come straight away from the hotel to put on the spare tyre for her. Very kind indeed.

By the time I had walked down to the clubhouse to help the new wheel had already been fitted.

You can guess who has been sorting out some new tyres this afternoon....

Almerimar bird watch


Almerimar bird watch

Perhaps something for John Wi to identify..... We spotted these birds close to the beach while we were walking along the prom today. When they flew off they looked a very pretty bright browny green colour.

I received an email last night with details of a charity golf competition for the Leukemia Foundation to be held at Almerimar on 5 August 2012. It is 25 euros a person (for Almerimar annual ticket purchasers) to take part which includes a donation to the charity.

We have just finished processing the Friday cards for handicap checking and have now decided to chill out rather than update the handicap list tonght. A quiet night in front of the telly is in order after a hard round of golf on a hot day in Almerimar.

Málaga cruise terminal

Jules has just pointed out that the new Málaga cruise terminal is now open according to the article here.

According to our resident cruise expert I believe that you can pick up a small number of cruises at Almería. However for most of them until now you had to go from near Barcelona. I guess that more cruises may become available from Málaga now. Which is easier to reach from Almerimar. Jules will be a happy bunny.

We have added a links page on the site that you can access from the menu on the left.

Please contact us if you would like us to add any links on this page.

While Jacqui and I are trying to build a new site we will be happy to try to incorporate features that readers would like as long as we feel we can maintain the security of the site.

If you have any requests for us to add specific content to the site please contact us.

It is a typical summer Friday here. Hot with not too much wind so far. Jacqui and I are just getting ready to go to Friday golf and Jacqui is reminding me not to be late.

We have a very good turn out for today - over 30 players which is a lot for this time of year.

We probably will not be posting much on the site today as once we finish the golf we will have to process the cards for handicaps, update the FGS site and send off the results for publication in the Sol Times next week.

For security reasons for the foreseeable future we will not be providing any interactive facilities on this site (e.g. forums, comments, etc.).

If you do want anything published here please email the information to us and we will publish items on your behalf.

I woke up this morning and decided I wanted to occasionally write things about Almerimar on the internet. Jacqui and I put things on Facebook from time to time but that is not the same as having your own site.

At present I have no idea how this site will end up. I guess it will just evolve over time.

So welcome back to our readers.
