A Walk On The Wild Side

Sorry I've been out of touch. Although all is well in Fuengirola (Málaga, Costa del Sol, Spain), my moods have been a little rocky. I've had plenty to share but haven't found myself all that interesting. I took a long solitary walk on the beach last week, mostly west, through the Fuengirola neighborhoods of Los Boliches, Torreblanca, Carvajal, before crossing into Benalmádena.  It helped.

ON THE ROCKS.
I HAD TO VEER RIGHT AND WAS WORRIED HIGH TIDE MIGHT BLOCK MY RETURN.
WONDERING IF THE TIDE WAS COMING IN OR GOING OUT...
... AND, DECIDING I DIDN'T CARE, CONTINUING AROUND THE POINT.
HAVING ALREADY WALKED BACK FOR 15 MINUTES.
MAUVE SEAWEED?
PETRIFIED WOOD?

I FOUND A PATH ABOVE THE BEACH FOR PART OF MY RETURN,
BUT THE TIDE WAS GOING OUT ANYWAY.

  1. And what a beautiful walk you had, Mitchell! What a great shoreline. It does take a few minutes to figure out which way the tide is going.
    Your moods probably fit right in with the moody sea.
    Have a wonderful week.

      I was pretty sure the tide was going out, but didn't give it much thought.

      That song came out when I was 17. I thought it was the coolest and most daring thing I'd ever heard. I probably didn't even "get" half of it.

  3. What a great place to walk and to let your mind wander, too.

      It's nice to be able to still find these quiet places right nearby.

  4. I love the walks around our place, but you have a much more dramatic and varied place to get your 10,000+ steps!

      I wonder how many steps I actually got that day.

  5. Great walk, Mitchell. I am envious that you have such a long stretch along the beach for walking. We have less than a mile between mangrove wetlands to the north and south of us. It gets a little boring if I don't shake it up now and then. I guess I need my own walk on the wild side. Cheers!

      Fuengirola itself I think has about 7 kilometres of paseo and beach (paralleling each other). Once you leave town in either direction, as you saw here, you can continue walking for miles (and kilometres, too).

  6. Looks like a great walk, and a nice place to collect your thoughts.

      And an even nicer place to cast some of those thoughts away!
