A celebration of Marbella Town’s autumnal sunset seascapes and magical moons

Marbella sunset skiesHaving been absent from Marbella Town throughout the month of September due to the death of my dearest Dad at the end of August – and not really here in spirit since my return – it is only since I got back home last weekend after a week literally walking my grief away in the healing wooded hills of the nearby white village of Ojén (post coming soon)  – that I’ve come back down the mountain with my soul refreshed and inspired once more to relaunch my blog and  share the gentler-paced late autumnal life in Marbella  – both inside and out.

We have been blessed with inordinately beautiful mild weather these past few weeks and now the welcome rains have come, I’ve had time to go through my photos and select a few taken on my evening walks along Marbella Town’s beachfront promenade to share with you… Continue reading

Marbella Town’s beaches: A place to disconnect and reconnect…

Nothing brings people together like the sea and the beach – people of all ages and sizes, families, total strangers and from all walks of life, becoming one, casting off their worldly worries and responsibilities to reconnect with their inner joy and peace.

As someone who walks or cycles along the beachfront of Marbella Town almost every day, I have taken a series of photos over time that capture this collective sense of wonder, freedom and tenderness which I’d like to share with you here and which speak for themselves… Continue reading

Living in a picture postcard by the sea – Marbella Town seascapes vol. 2

Amid all the turmoil and fear-inducing news that we are being spoon-fed on a daily basis, I feel all the more blessed to be able to step into the stunning picture postcard seascape scenes I witness every day, as I walk along the shores of Marbella Town.

I´d like to share a couple of my Marbella seascape inspired poems with you, along with some photos that capture their essence… Continue reading

The forested paths of Marbella Town’s “Gunpowder Plains”

1

I read an article a couple of months ago about “the lost art of getting lost” and was mulling this over as I walked back from my favourite supermarket at the far west end of Calle Jacinto Benavente, the street we locals call the “post office road” that runs parallel above Marbella Town’s high street, Avenida Ricardo Soriano.

2For years when walking back along this route, I have simply passed by these two squat tower-like buildings with steps leading up to a now unused fountain some 30 metres above street level, with a forested area beyond but never thought to explore further. I was put off from so doing by the signs on these tower-like structures which read “Club de Golf Marbella” and more intimidatingly, “Motoclub Los Mentirosos” (The Liar’s Biker’s Club!), imagining that these steps led to an incongruously mismatched shared private sports practice area, where leather-clad bikers dodged around tartan-trousered golfers.

However, in the spirit of “the lost art of getting lost”, I cast aside my trepidation of trespassing and climbed up the steps… Continue reading

Living in a picture postcard by the sea – Marbella Town seascapes (vol. I)

Living as close to the beach as I do, I am always surprised by the number of Marbella Town’s long-term residents who rarely take the time to walk along its shores unless it’s in the summer, when for me, this is a time when Marbella’s beaches are to be avoided, unless its early in the morning or evening and clear of sunbathing holidaymakers.

Although a walk along the beachfront promenade gives you plenty of photo opportunities of the most amazing sunrises and sunsets Continue reading
