Rainy fleamarket in Salobreña
Our Andalusian summer is being whimsical, it was hot on friday, rainy on saturday and hot again on sunday. On the first saturday of every month, there is now a fleamarket in Salobreña on the coast which according to my friend Gym is getting better and better. So I couldn't wait to go and see. The rain didn't stop me but of course when I got there a bit before 11, all the sellers were folding their stand because of the weather.
I was looking for an old trunk to use as a coffee table on the roof terrace and instead I found this.....It was love at first sight ! A tapestry which the seller assured me to be very very old, which I was a bit doubtful about. But old or not old, it doesn't matter, I love the scene which is represented and the atmosphere.
So in spite of the grey weather, yes it was a great fleamarket...at least for me, because I was so pleased with this find...
And of course, we had to celebrate with an espeto de sardinas at bar restaurant El Peñon. Sardines and octopus are grilled on wooden sticks in the open air by un muchacho muy simpatico.Well we couldn't really stay outside because the wind played too much with our hair and the table cloth
Grilled sardines + tinto de verano, (the summer Spanish drink par excellence prepared with fizzy lemonade and red wine) , for me that's the best combo !
