Fishing Before Surfing / Pesca Antes De Surfear

BEFORE THE SURF was up Sunday, the fisherman were. Fuengirola has a number of annual fishing competitions and there was one on our beach in Los Boliches from sunrise until noon. High surf, gusting winds, and rain arrived at 1:00. Perfect timing. (I have no idea what they were fishing for nor what the prize was.)

LOS PESCADORES ESTABAN despiertos el domingo por la mañana antes de que las olas subieran. Fuengirola tiene varios concursos anuales de pesca y había uno en la playa de Los Boliches (nuestro barrio) desde el amanecer hasta el mediodía. El oleaje alto, los vientos fuertes y la lluvia llegaron a la una. Sincronización perfecta. (No tengo idea de qué estaban pescando ni cuál era el premio.)

YESTERDAY/AYER...
...AND TODAY/Y HOY.

I THOUGHT HE WAS STANDING AT A LAPTOP. WHAT A SET-UP FOR HIS FISHING SUPPLIES!
PENSÉ QUE ÉL ESTABA PARADO EN UNA PORTÁTIL. ¡QUÉ BUENA CONFIGURACIÓN PARA SUS SUMINISTROS DE PESCA!

  1. When I retire, which is some time, I am most definelty living at a beach location.....most likely Rehoboth Beach. Maybe Ptwon. It must be very good for the mind and soul to see, hear and smell the ocean. You may have just inspired me.

    1. mistress maddie,
      Living on the beach is ideal for me. Listening o the surf at night. Seeing forever. The sea spray on those windy days. The microdermabrasion when the sand blows...

    1. Jim,
      A chilly 16C (61F) today! Brrrrr... but it’s been down to 9C (48F) some mornings. That windy fishing morning was around 12C (54F). It feels much colder to us.

    1. Adam,
      They mostly seemed so blissful. I always found fishing a bit boring.

  4. The fish swim that close to shore? (As you can tell, I'm no fisherman.)

    1. Kirk,
      I think this kind of weather brings hem close. But quite often the fishing boats will be very close to shore too.

  5. Should I take up fishing in my later years? Very- Very pretty place. I need to visit Spain.

      I've grown to love Fuengirola. I find fishing a bit boring but it could be more fun along the beach planting the poles in the sand and strolling to visit friends.
