Lost Dog  

Span dog Span dog 02

My small Spanish dog has gone missing in the Triana area.

Her name is Rosie, she is black and white.

She has 4 white feet, white  chest and neck, white tipped tail.

She is a mixture but resembles a Spanish Water Dog.

If you see her she may be frightened so please put a leash on her.

She is chipped and is 16 years old but sprightly.

Please phone Eleanor, who was minding her for me, on 677 306 005.

I am presently in the UK and quite devastated she is missing

The last photo is an actual puppy Spanish Water Dog.

Firsts one is Rosie she has a white tip to her tail and her chest is more white.




Litter to Home


I know we are suffering from burn out when it comes to saving animals here in Spain but what can we do about these six puppies born a few weeks ago on the hill above Torrox/Nerja and likely to be dumped somewhere.  The owner speaks of selling them in a pet shop but I am told this is not allowed.  The other option is the place near Malaga that the camposinas resort to where I’m told if they aren’t sold in a week they are killed.

I filmed them here –

Services,  Fitness Class Survey… please give me input…

Offering classes for you at the beach, or some other location close to Torrox Costa.

I have a car, so can travel.

I am a fitness trainer living on the Costa.  I would like to start several classes.

I teach water aerobics, boot camp, yoga and a class called Fall proof,  which teaches you exercises to strengthen and add flexibility to your body so that you avoid falling.  I also offer private 1 to 1, or small group exercise sessions.

If you are interested in have a group start in your location please contact me.  If you know of any place that might be a good place to hold a class, write or call and tell me.

I would like to start a business without a roof on the Costa,  offering classes the community needs, giving me a reason to return to this community.

Any advice would be helpful, Especially if you have knowledge about websites to connect to the German, Swedish, and Dutch communities….





Also, please join us at 2pm Tuesdays and Thursdays for an exercise class on the waterfront in

Torrox Costa.  Meet at the Necropolis next to the lighthouse at 1400.

Services Needed Removals – UK to Spain ( & Return?)

I have items in storage in the UK, which is proving very expensive and am looking for a reliable, careful, insured company that would welcome a return trip with my household belongings.

Mostly furniture and boxes (about 1800 cubic feet = 180 cubic metres) back here to Salobrena area (near Motril).

Anyone relocating back to the UK, could also be interested in giving  the same company a full load to return back to Andalucia.

Eroski’s at El Ingelio, Velez Malaga, sell them.



Pino Electrical, Calle Custodio Puga, Torre Del Mar have them.

We bought a double under-blanket separate supply and controls for each side, lo-med-hi.

As you drive west through Torre on the 340, it’s the turn before the taxi rank.

It’s one way and difficult to park. Excellent shop for all leccy bits,

one assistant speaks good English and is very knowledgeable.

Recommendation – The  Buddha Restaurant

Been twice now to the Buddha Restaurant. The food is so very very good, the best Indian restaurant we have ever visited in the area. The food is fragrant. There is a lunchtime menu for 8 euros which finishes at 4.00pm, even available on Saturdays The staff are from Nepal and are extremely polite and friendly. The Buddha is located on the main road at Penoncillo adjacent to the motor bike shop. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

If you like Indian food you will not be disappointed. Do try it.




Recommendation – Translator

We have no hesitation in recommending Patricia for all your translation needs. So far her and her husband Richard have helped with the Seguridad Social, hospital appointments and purchasing a car. A great couple, offering a great service, who definitely go the extra mile with a smile!

What’s on Nerja Players.  Tuesday 16th Feb.  

Dramatised Reading  “Not Fur Long” 6 30 pm for 7pm
Story telling or readings are the oldest form of entertainment. The roots of this art lie deep in the history of civilisation, dating back to an era when only a favoured few were literate, and shared their good fortune by reading aloud great stories, myths, legends, plays and poems. Dramatised readings demand skill on the part of the narrators and actors plus the listeners themselves to attain that wondrous quality of acceptance which Samuel Coleridge called “the willing suspension of disbelief”
“I have always loved stories” says our director, Peter Burch, “and this performance is part of an experiment to determine the future potential of this medium from an acting and audience viewpoint . I have taken a short story, written by Roald Dahl (part of his “Tales of the Unexpected”) and essentially adapted and staged it as a dramatised reading, enhanced by selected music links and appropriate sound effects. More about this I do not wish to add in case I give away the plot!”  “Not Fur Long” will be performed on stage by 9 people and will be presented in the Nerja Bridge Club in Castillo Perez on Tuesday 16th February 2016….do come along to sit back and enjoy the fruits of a master story teller.
