Parting shots / Último comentario

La versión en español está después de la versión en inglés.

Before I head to the gym — after 3 week’s absence — I’ll leave you with some random shots from the evening the Virgin of Carmen went for a stroll, and a float. The top photo was taken from the beach during the procession. No special filters or treatments. That’s just what I captured.

I’m trying to decide which museum I’ll visit during my day in Málaga this week. Temps are supposed to hover around 30˚C / 86˚F and, although it will really be a bit warmer than that, it won’t be anything like the heat being experienced nearby (and even in London where air conditioning is almost unheard of).

I’m ashamed to say I still haven’t begun yoga. And I need it.


Antes de ir al gimnasio, después de 3 semanas de ausencia, les dejo algunas tomas aleatorias de la noche en que la Virgen del Carmen salió a pasear, y a flotar. La foto superior se hizo desde la playa durante la procesión. Sin filtros ni tratamientos especiales. Eso es justo lo que capturé.

Estoy tratando de decidir qué museo visitaré durante mi día en Málaga esta semana. Se supone que las temperaturas rondan los 30˚C / 86˚F y, aunque realmente hará un poco más de calor que eso, no será como el calor que se experimenta cerca (e incluso en Londres, donde el aire acondicionado es casi desconocido).

Me avergüenza decir que todavía no he comenzado a hacer yoga. Y lo necesito.

• A new addition this year. A stage for live music. Fuengirola TV displaying live updates, and more.
• Una nueva incorporación este año. Un escenario para música en vivo. Fuengirola TV mostrando actualizaciones en vivo, y más.
• Some guys have the coolest equipment. His included a jet pack, although I never did see him launch.
• Algunos muchachos tienen el mejor equipo. El suyo incluía un jet pack, aunque nunca lo vi lanzar.
• Anna Mula, mayor of Fuengirola.
• Anna Mula, alcaldesa de Fuengirola.
• All those people had to eat.
• Toda esa gente tenía que comer.

      I didn’t have any. But I wouldn’t anyway. I’ve had them a couple of times (at good and bad chiringuitos). It’s not the way I like them.

  1. I think you will be thankful for ‘muscle memory’ during and after your gym visit.
    What a good first photo of the night beach scene.
    What is the next festival/parade coming up?

    1. Jim:
      Didn’t make it yesterday. But, yes, muscle memory will be nice. I can’t remembe what’s next. Will have to look it up.

  2. So many people, so few masks, so much new Covid strain spreading like crazy.
    I hope you enjoy a great museum visit in Málaga this week!

    1. Judy C:
      I had my mask on when in the crowd. SG never took his off. There were some people masked, but very few, although recommended in crowds. Still required on public transport and anything medical, including pharmacies.

  3. May I suggest you pick a time every day, same time, 5 minutes only, and do some yoga? Some is better than none and you get the ball rolling this way.

  4. I love that top photo — what a great capture. And look at you, rubbing elbows with the mayor! I never thought I’d see the day when the high temps on the Costa del Sol are 13 degrees COOLER than London.

    1. Stephen Reed:
      I know! We FaceTimed with friends in Colchester the other day. Hotter there than here and no air conditioning. I couldn’t do it. (Well, I could, but I wouldn’t want to.) You guys are tough.

  5. I agree with the consensus – that first shot is positively Impressionist!

    Impressed that London’s currently hotter than Fuengirola! I could do with a sea breeze… Jx

    1. Jon:
      Oh, the sea breeze is a life saver. Only supposed to be in the high 20s here today. Feels warmer but nothing like what you’re experiencing. I love when being unable to focus creates such artful photos.

  6. I always wanted to try yoga, but I’m afraid my body can no longer handle the types of bends and stretches involved. I’m one wrong move from being torn in half.

    1. Sassybear:
      So frustrating. My mother did chair yoga. No major bends and stretches. She loved it. Although at the age of 87, she could still sit with her knees folded up to her chest to give herself a pedicure.
