Gonna Build A Mountain

By Friday afternoon, a day with some sunshine and only a little drizzle here and there, the City of Fuengirola had finished piling up all the debris washed ashore from our previous week of storms. There was, of course, the typical trash, but the primary flotsam was bamboo stalks.

San Geraldo wondered where all the bamboo had come from. I said I thought it had all come from the sea. He said he thought I was a smart ass.

Throughout Friday, the pile of bamboo and other debris grew higher and higher right across the street. I wanted San Geraldo to climb on top for my photos. He thought about it and decided it was too dangerous. Sometimes he can be so mature.

FROM THE TERRACE FRIDAY MORNING.
FROM THE PASEO FRIDAY AFTERNOON.
DUDO AND MOOSE ENJOYING FRIDAY'S BIT OF SUNSHINE
ON THEIR TERRACE RETREAT.

It's raining again, and it's supposed to do so with a vengeance. Over these next few days, we're expecting double the accumulation of the last round of storms. But despite the weather and the news from around the world, Fuengirola has built a mountain and I'm 'gonna' push my daydream up that mountain slope (it's all in the song below).

      And that's all that matters (or at least that's what the cats tell me).

  2. Our rain has stopped, at least for the next few days. I wonder if that bamboo was part of some seaside (or riverside) structure that was destroyed in the earlier rains and storms? Like SG, I wonder where it all came from.

    Lucky cats have you to build their mountain for them.

      The cats now have two "trees," one in the house and one on the terrace. What a life. As for the bamboo, a friend was wondering the same thing at coffee this morning. He also thought I was a smart ass. There's lost more on the shore now. And, really, I, too, wonder where it came from.

  5. Hopefully you'll sail past the next storm just as you survived the last. Take care.

      We're high and dry, but I have a feeling a lot of people are really suffering through the current storm.

  6. I didn't listen to the song today, but now I've got Dick Van Dyke's "Me Ol' Bamboo" running through my head. Aaack!

      Oh, I'm so glad I didn't think of Dick Van Dyke when I posted this! The video is long, but it's worth watching maybe half of it if you have time. Incredible performance.

  7. Will the city haul it away, or burn it?

      The city will definitely haul it away, but I have no idea where they take it. And now there's at least equal that amount washed up on shore all over again.

  8. Sorry for your rain! But, I'll bet it looks cool to watch it storming, from your newly-glassed-in terrace :) Dudo and Moose look sooooo content!

      I absolutely love it and we keep celebrating our new terrace. Too bad this current round of rain has caused so much damage.
