Las Salinas de Torrevieja. The Pink Lagoon Torrevieja

I can’t believe I haven’t shared photos of Las Salinas de Torrevieja or the pink salt lagoon located in Parque Natural de Las Lagunas de la Mata e Torrevieja from our Calpe 2018 holiday!

We stopped off at probably one of the nicest beaches first near Alicante, Playa de San Juan. Warm, shallow, beautiful blue and green turquoise waters. I didn’t want to leave however with the sun getting hotter, the beach busier and the afternoon shortening we debated over going to Alicante or Las Salinas de Torrevieja. P won as it’s meant to look amazing at sunset and we didn’t have long to make it for sunset (FIY I still want to go to Alicante for the old town). Inspired and amazed by the colours I went a little photosnappy…

We arrived I think an hour to 45 minutes before sunset which was plenty of time to see the water lit pink as the sunset. Located nearby is Torrevieja’s salt mine which causes one lagoon to be pink and the other lagoon green! The lagoon’s pink colour’s due Continue reading “Las Salinas de Torrevieja.

Autumn Winter Project Light

Winter’s here in the North Hemisphere! The sun’s low in the sky, the cold’s arrived. It’s only been a month since the winter solstice and already the days are noticeably longer. Longer than when they were a month leading up to the solstice. Which means spring’s in 2 months!

I love the longer brighter days as the sun starts to climb higher in the sky, however nothing beats the colours and crisp light of late autumn, early winter’s golden hour, sunsets and twilight. The sun’s so low in the sky molecules and small particles in the atmosphere change Continue reading “Autumn Winter Project Light”

Intentions 2019

Happy New Year!

Sunset 1st Jan 2019

I hope you had an amazing time celebrating the New Year whether you were sleeping, partying or like me celebrating New Year’s Day soaking up the sun at the beach!

Like Christmas, ringing in the New Year was low key. Thanks to TVE1 en directo on my phone, the cats and I rang in the New Year watching the ball drop in Puerta de Sol Madrid snugged up warm. I just just managed to eat all 12 grapes in before the 12 campanadas finished. Just. Does having 1 or 2 left mid chew as you try to avoid choking on grape juice count?

I’m more New Year’s day than New Year’s Eve. I like to see the sunrise rise Continue reading “Intentions 2019”

Christmas 2018

Happy Winter!

I hope you had great Christmas! Mine was low key, just me and the cats. If I’m honest I was looking forward to it being just me and the cats. A few days of taking it easy, no having to eat a humongous Christmas dinner (sorry P! You know I’m happier with a salad and minimal fuss), my own schedule. Maybe I’m a Grinch.

Ever since I found out cinemas are open Christmas Day in Spain from late afternoon, it’s become a tradition. Christmas Day Movie! I booked up to the see the earliest showing of Aquaman. Growing up I was never Marvel or a DC Comic girl, I was more Star Wars, Indiana Jones girl. I could never get how Lois Lane couldn’t see how Clark Kent and Superman looked alike. I mean all he did was Continue reading “Christmas 2018”
