A Little Bit Country / Un Poco Del Campo

I TOOK A walk off the beaten path today, leaving the beach behind. I was still in the City of Fuengirola but it's surprising how quickly city becomes country.

DI UN CAMINO de senderos trillados hoy, dejando la playa atrás. Todavía estaba en la ciudad de Fuengirola, pero es sorprendente lo rápido que la ciudad se convierte en campo.


THREE CATS AND A DOG (THAT I COULD SEE). I LIKE THIS HOUSE!
TRES GATOS Y UN PERO (QUE PUDE VER). ¡ME GUSTA ESTA CASA!
A FIXER UPPER?
¿UNA CASA QUE NECESITA ARREGLOS?
ANOTHER HOUSE WITH POSSIBILITIES!
OTRA CASA CON POSIBLIDADES!

THIS PHOTO CALLED FOR FOR BLACK & WHITE.
ESA FOTO REQUERÍA BLANCO Y NEGRO.
"NOBODY HERE BUT US CHICKENS."
"NO HAY NADIE AQUÍ SALVO NOSOTROS POLLOS."
LIARS! THERE WAS A TURKEY!
¡MENTIROSOS! ¡HABÍA UN PAVO!

MOOSE: "DID SOMEONE MENTION TURKEY?!?"
MOOSE: ¿ALGUIEN MENCIONÓ EL PAVO?

      When I looked at that scene, I thought it had to be B&W. Moose is already perfect in B&W.

      Knowing Dudo, he probably would have see the chickens and then run and hid.

  4. What a lovely area. Hard to believe it is so close to you. Can you show us your walking route on Google Earth? Moose is gorgeous.

  5. Looks a lot like parts of Southern California. You might consider getting a go-cam and posting videos of your walks on YouTube.

      If I had a go-cam, I'd become addicted! And, yes, Southern Spain looks very much like Southern California.

  6. You wouldn't do well living in the country. Too far to get to a restaurant.

      Exactly. I tried once. A 10-minute drive or a 30-minute walk on a country highway with no shoulder to walk on to the nearest restaurant and that was way too far.

  8. Your blog is an ongoing pleasure for learning Spanish - better than Duolingo and with better photos.

      Thanks. I've been told by my Spanish friends that I'm doing a very good job. So, you shouldn't embarrass yourself.

  9. I can easily imagine the paradise you and San Geraldo could craft from that fixer-upper.

      The first thought I have whenever I see a place like this. Talk about a money pit!

      Moose isn't big on hugging, so I gave Dudo two.
