Our usual morning coffee stop, El Jazzy Bar, is located right on the edge of the ruins park and, since El Jazzy is closed Mondays, I decided to check out "The Baths" Tuesday morning only to discover that they were no longer abubble. One pool had some water, but my favorite round pool had drained.
Then I noticed that the Roman fish salting factory also appeared to be back in business. Well, maybe not back in business. But there's lots of water. It's a start.

|MA FAVORITE POOL. FILLED SUNDAY. EMPTY TUESDAY.|
|WAITING FOR THE FISH TO BE DELIVERED?|

They'd come to the Fuengirola Baths if only the baths would hold water!
