How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your pics into a single collage pic by using this free (you need to provide email) online tool. So by using this tool, each pic submitted may actually be many more pics combined. https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Baviera Golf Info: Uncertainty over future of Baviera Golf. The recent decision to make more than half of the staff at Baviera golf course in Caleta de Vélez redundant has thrown doubt over the future of the facility. The announcement was made by Baviera’s management last Saturday and leaves just seven people employed at the course. As well as the redundancies, the management also announced that the golf course would only be open from Monday to Friday and closed at weekends with immediate effect and until further notice.

Damaged Car: Just wondered if any Digamites witnessed the collision in which my car was damaged. I was parked (on Friday 21st June) between 4.30 and 7.30pm,on the large waste ground below the Almazara Hotel on the Frigiliana Road, Nerja. I think there was a witness as the driver of the car/van which hit me left a phone number (false). If you saw anything please contact me at
marion underscore talbot at yahoo.com. Thank you, Marion (Nerja)


HEATWAVE: Most of Spain and Western Europe is set to sizzle in temperatures up to 45C however forecasters say we in Andalucia will escape the worst of it. On this occasion it will be areas of north eastern Spain that are badly hit, rather than the typically hotter southern regions of Extremadura, Andalusia and Murcia. Zaragoza and Logroño will see the mercury rise on Friday to 45C and 44C respectively, whereas Seville will get a balmier and not too uncommon summer temperature of 35C by the weekend. Madrid will also have to endure 41C temperatures by Friday. In Majorca and the other Balearics, the average daytime temperature for the second half of the week will be 35C.
As RTVE meteorologist Silvia Laplana labelled it in this heat map of Spain for the next week, “el inferno (hell) is coming”.  Source:
