Those Annoying Piles / Esas Pilas Molestas

La versión español está después de la versión inglés.

FUENGIROLA TAKES CARE of its unsightly piles. The beach was a mess after our most recent rain and wind storm (already weeks ago). The crews were out for days cleaning and stacking before hauling it all away. When they were done they smoothed out the sand (a job I would really enjoy). Unfortunately, someone always comes along and messes up my massive Zen garden with their footprints. Then again, I do like to walk on the beach and, if I arrive before anyone else has left a mark, I tend to be very hesitant to take that first step.


FUENGIROLA CUIDA SUS montones antiestéticos. La playa fue un desastre después de nuestra lluvia y tormenta de viento más recientes (hace ya unas semanas). Los equipos estuvieron fuera durante días limpiando y apilando antes de transportarlo todo. Cuando terminaron, alisaron la arena (un trabajo que realmente disfrutaría). Desafortunadamente, siempre viene alguien y arruina mi enorme jardín zen con sus huellas. Por otra parte, me gusta caminar por la playa y, si llego antes de que alguien más haya dejado una marca, tiendo a dudar mucho de dar ese primer paso.

En inglés, la palabra “piles” puede significar “pilas” o “hemorroides”.

      It never lasts long here… except during winter storms when the sand is blown smooth.

  1. I see what you mean……..last photo very Zen.
    And since nothing lasts forever, enjoy it while you can.
    Those are some HUGE piles there!

    1. David,
      The beach clean-up is year-round and constant. They take seriously good care of it.

      1. Raybeard,
        That’s as close as i get to even mentioning the other kind!

  2. Just like a zamboni driver….until someone skates on the ice. They did do a really good cleanup job.

    1. Cheapchick,
      It’s constant. And some days of the keepers of the beach chairs diligently rake their areas during season. I however find that to be a complete waste of time.

    1. Willym,
      I don’t worry about click bait; don’t even track clicks (or I’d obsess about it). I just like to come up with titles that make MY two faithful readers wonder what’s coming.

    1. Walt the Fourth,
      Oh, I saw one the past couple of days I didn’t even have to crop. You’ll see it soon, too!

Please share your thoughts...
