It's not all sun & fun in Spain


The Med gets choppy for a few days

Had a great day out with Canadian friends Wendy & Barry, they took us up into the Sierra de los Filabres to the white washed village of Bedar. 

The parish church Iglesia Santa de la Cabeza

After Bedar we continued over the mountain, our guides knew of a good lunch stop at El Machal.

When we arrived it was closed down, we learnt from the English owners that although the enterprise had been successful and had been embraced by all the Spanish locals in the small village, one Spaniard had been a problem with regular threats to the owners and vandalism to the property.

Their appeals to the local police fell on deaf ears, the last straw was when the Spaniard slashed Wayne four times with a knife, still the police refused to get involved, eventually the villagers afraid of this one individual turned there backs on the bar and it's owners.

It was very sad listening to the stressed out couple who said they would never try to open an enterprise or live in a Spanish only village again.... I suppose living in BritSpain has advantages.

We headed back to the coast stopping at La Montana restaurant near Bedar for a drink from the bar before moving on to Puerto Madero our new favourite tapas bar.
