Let’s Give A Big Hand

I took a walk on the paseo Thursday afternoon past the Port of Fuengirola and discovered a new park right on the beach. It’s called La Vida (The Life) and includes a huge cement statue of a hand (or maybe it’s five statues of a thumb and four fingers?) created by local sculptor Rosario García.

Apparently, this — the sculpture, lawn, and some new palm trees — marks the completion of only the first phase of the park. I have no idea what’s still to come or in how many phases. I promise to give you a first-hand account. Although it might be second-hand information.

On the other hand, take note of where the new tree is planted. Is that what’s meant by knowing something “like the palm of one’s hand”?

OK, I can already hear San Geraldo begging me to stop.

I’m done.

Your turn. (You know you want to.)



I’ve got to hand it to them…
