Remembering September 2007

With the scare of yesterday’s flash flood receding with no more to lament in Almuñécar than raging rivers passing by, but within their banks, and knee-level flooded streets, let’s look back six years…

San Jose in Almería

San Jose, tucked away in the Natural Park of Cabo de Gata.Nijar has some amazing, uspoilt beaches. Minutes away, in Isleta del Moro, a tiny fishing village, time stands still.

Horse Lovers’ Treat

Hundreds of Almuñequeros and visitors virtually filled the provisional bull ring to witness Andalusian Horse Dressage at its best, during the 90 minutes that the horse show lasted.

Romeria Photo Gallery

The Romeria del Sur took place in Salobreña with 48 highly decorated floats/carts taking part. There were no incidents with the horses, as they were denied access to the beach area, as mentioned in the previous Seaside Gazette article on the event.

AECC Charity Run

As always, the race saw many entrants running for our, much-loved, local, cancer charity, AECC (Asociacion Española Contra el Cancer). These local residents all gave up their time, not just during the run, but also obtaining sponsorship and training for the day. Some ran just a couple of K’s, while others ran the entire 14… with some respectable times we might add!

San Juan Almunecar 2011

San Juan is a youngster’s festival – if you’re in your late teens or twenties, on the beach is a must on the night of San Juan. But it’s not exclusively theirs, because it is also the night for whole families. Childhood memories are always full of this magic night of towering bonfires and partying. Admittedly, parents of kids up to around eight will probably go home soon after the main bonfire is light at midnight, rather than spending the night camped out, but the rest stay, to witness dawn before finally crashing out.

Motril Air Fair

The 6th Annual Motril Air Show went off very well – around 10,000 spectators turned up, according to the organisers. It didn’t seem like that many to me, but it was certainly packed.
