Malaga, March 9
Today was a relatively easy day although we did put in over 19,000 steps or approximately 8 1/2 miles.
We walked to our pickup point for tomorrow’s visit to Gibraltar to be sure we would know where to be. We stopped for coffee and pastries before heading to the market.
We walked to to the Malaga Market and what a market it is! it is quite large and essentially divided into three sections; meat, fish and fruit & vegetables. Very impressive! We picked up four stuffed mushrooms, fresh tomatoes, fresh bread and olives and had quite a feast for lunch. That is all gone.
In addition, Jill & I picked up a lovely piece of salmon, Scott and Cathy are having chicken, with small potatoes and cauliflower for dinner. The girls are preparing dinner as I write this blog.
After lunch, we headed to the beach where we walked for quite a distance along the boardwalk and got some great views of the Malaga Cathedral and The Alcazaba of Malaga. We intend to visit these two interesting sites as well as many others here in Malaga.
Unfortunately one of my memory cards failed and I did lose my pictures from the one camera that included some of the beach walk as well as the market pictures. Not really a problem as we will be returning to the market and I do have pics from the 200 telephoto lens.
The last thing we did today was to pickup sandwiches for our bus ride to Gibraltar. This will be an early start with the bus picking us up at 7:00 am. it is a good half hour walk to the pickup point, so it looks like a 5:30 am start tomorrow morning.
Here are some street scenes from this walk.
