Everyone Knows It's Windy / Todo El Mundo Sabe Que Hace Viento


After a week of summer-like weather, we had a few days of Málaga winter again — rough surf, super-high tides and San Geraldo's "ciclonicos" (high winds).

It seems to be settling down today. The red flags on the beach have been replaced with yellow ones.

There was quite a bit of damage and some interesting things washed ashore.


Después de una semana de verano, tuvimos unos días de invierno (de Málaga) — oleaje fuerte, mareas muy altas, y los ciclónicos de San Geraldo (vientos fuertes).

Parece haberse calmado hoy. Las banderas rojas en la playa han sido reemplazadas por las amarillas.

Había daño y algunas cosas interesantes llegaron a tierra.

      1 and 3 are buoys. 2 is a buoy anchor. The others are what used to be paths on the beach. And then there are the beach umbrellas from one of the beach clubs. They had to be moved to the pavement when the beach club was entirely under water.

  2. Wow....your beaches are taking a beating this season. Also shows just how much junk and things are in the ocean. What a shame. I'm surprised the Titanic didn't wash up.

      Very unusual to have this happen so many times in one season. Those first three items are buoys and a buoy anchor. The others are pieces of boardwalk and beach paving stones that got tossed around and need to be re-positioned (each of those white slabs weighs a ton... or at least 25 pounds). Not as much trash as I would have expected.

  3. I'd like to take home some of what washed ashore, though much of it looks quite heavy!

    We were 92-degrees yesterday and 69-degrees today.
    Climate change? Nah!

      Some stretches of the Paseo have been repeatedly hit by surf and sand. Our spot on the Paseo seems to still maintain some little distance. I wonder how long that will last. But I know some congressman made a snowball last winter, so global warming is a hoax.

  6. Very rough seas. It looks much colder than it probably is though

      Not cold at all. The wind could make it a bit unpleasant (and almost impossible to walk), but that has passed.

  7. It looks like you've experienced some severe weather.

      Very strange. Much worse in other spots nearby along the coast... and at either end of town where the beach is not as broad.

  8. I would think interesting things will continually wash ashore where you live, yes?

      Just a bunch of buoys and buoy anchors that I've seen. I keep waiting for a treasure chest to wash ashore right across the street when I'm the only one looking.

  9. Looks like the waves came quite far up the beach. Hope you are back to spring/early summer soon.

      The beach is very broad nearest to us, but there are stretches that are less so and the surf and sand came up onto the road. Also, a lot of beach has been lost to erosion. They had just started regrading and hauling in new sand when this happened.

  10. An ever changing landscape from the seascape.

      Another buoy washed up overnight. And the colors of the sea and sky today are changing every minute.

  11. We were on the Gulf of St Lawrence on Sunday and it was uncommonly rough for this time of year but not much was washing ashore but the winds were some strong.
