So, having locked me out of my account for a couple of days I can finally get back on here, but...
I have no photos today. Definitely none of Velez-Malaga, the fire on the side of the mountain or a herd of goats being led back up the track. And contrary to whatever anyone says, it's not because I took them without putting the card back in the camera. I mean, who'd do that kind of thing? You can imagine, you buy a decent camera, one that almost smirks; " I'm for someone much more professional than you, although I have a few easy modes an idiot like you may just about cope with, like full automatic. If you are such a rank amateur as to forget to take the card back out of your computer for a whole day then I'm certainly not going to do any of those childish things my point and shoot cousins might, like store images internally or flash up big warnings telling you that you forgot to put the memory card back, I'll just show you what you think you've just taken a picture of on my LCD screen before forgetting it for ever. After all, only an idiot would do something like that and I'm clearly not the sort of camera an idiot would buy, am I?"
Or perhaps I've just been reading too much Terry Pratchett lately.
Anyway, It remains hot here (93 degrees) and I'm on my own again. Dad and Wendy have gone off to Granada for the night to celebrate his birthday and the fact that there's someone here to look after the animals. Whuelga and Canella are very well behaved horses and perfectly polite as I've remembered when to feed them and give them their hay.
I made it to the village twice today, to make up for not coming yesterday and it paid off as I got to send an email to travellerspoint pleading that this may be bad but surely can't warrant locking me out forever.
So all I can do is promise some pictures later, though I don't think I'll go to the trouble of finding a firebug to set fire to the mountainside, I may get to photograph the goats again as they get walked by every few days. They already stopped and posed a lot so, having done a rehearsal I hope I'll be able to get some good goat-poses. I may even take the bus down to the coast later in the week and post a piccy of the beach at Torre del mar.
