From late May up until after the travelling fair has been and gone, round and about the first weekend of September, it very rarely rains in our part of Andalucia. This year the heavy rains didn’t sweep in till a week or so ago.
“To every cloud there’s a silver lining,” is the sort of thing boring old farts in pubs will tell you when it’s tipping down in Swampton Mirely and you haven’t brought a raincoat, so I won’t bother.
Instead, I’d like to point out that, typically Andalucian, to every cloud there’s a dazzling, multi-coloured lining trimmed with gold down here. Once the clouds start drifting back Conil de la Frontera is treated to some stunningly spectacular sunsets and sunrises throughout September and October. I tried to capture a few. And a miscellaneous selection of what I have always referred to as ‘other stuff’.
