GIVE THE LITTLE PICS A CLICK……IN THEIR OWN BRIGHT, NEW WINDOW, NOT ONLY WILL THEY BE FAR BIGGER AND OH SO MUCH CRISPIER, THEY WILL ALSO SMELL OF THE SEA AND EMIT SUBLIMINAL SEA-GULL SQUAWKS. TRUST ME, SOME OF THIS IS TRUE.
So after yesterdays landscapes I thought we’d get our nose clips and goggles on, and take a look at the wet stuff…in this case the Mediterranean, specifically the none beachy bit of the sea front in Almeria town.
The beachy bit is fine…..bright umbrellas, neon plastic foldy-woldy chairs, slushy lemon ice vendors, ponies in sombreros, rainbow hued inflatables, and of course, bodies of all shapes, sizes and sexes, strutting their lycra enhanced stuff….As beaches go it ain’t classy, but it sure is colourful…However…Not today, not on this blog.
No…I headed for the much more interesting industrial bit, down towards the port.
I’m giving an ingenuity prize for the Can Jockey responsible for this….It’s not the best bit of paint I’ve ever seen but given that he/she must have been waste deep, wearing trunks or a swimsuit, how, (and where), did they carry the cans?
This rusty, stilty thing is another mystery…..It supports a wide gauge rail track and describes a sweeping curve, out from the city, over a landscaped park and on, into the ocean…It must be some twenty or thirty metres tall at the end, yet at that point, the sea is no more than 10 metres deep…What on earth can that be all about?
Answers on a postcard please.
