Postcard from Spain (September 2013 edition) Day 4b

We’ve had a kind of lazy day today to compensate for yesterday’s long drive. But we have made our way down to the beach late this afternoon, when the locals tend to grab whatever sunshine they can after work. It’s kind of hazy sunshine, but still busy enough on the beach, and the ‘sting’ of 30 degrees plus, up until a couple of weeks back, is now giving way to fresher weather (and the potential for storms tomorrow! 😮 )

We sea-bathed 🙂 and then as I dried off I watched an elderly Spanish woman, nude of course, and her equally naked middle-aged daughter make their way to the water’s edge.

They didn’t go in. ‘Mum’ was a little unsteady on her feet, and there was a chance the water could have pulled her off them, but there she was, in all her naked, glorious, life-well-lived-and-won glory, as naked as the day she was born. She looked beautiful.
