No walk in Chiclana next Friday July 18th.
Instead, we will go to Conil and enjoy a different but just as beautiful setting. We will meet at the Tuna Fish sculpture along the beach at 11am.
It is near Río Salado, the river that runs into the sea on the southern edge of the town beach.
Come join us!
See you there.
Summer on the beach starts officially in Chiclana after the fair is over.
We had a wonderful time at the fair this year: great company, food, dancing, a carriage ride and fireworks on the last night.
July is here!
The school year is over and many people join us to keep up their English over the summer. The beach is starting to get crowded and all the summer beach services are available now. It is a big change from winter’s empty shores.
Lots of families! Sometimes we go for a swim during our summer walks.
Our walking schedule continues to be Fridays at 11 a.m. and Sundays at 7 p.m. Don’t forget we sometimes have Special Events so make sure to like our Facebook page to stay up to date.
Two special events for the Chiclana Fair:
Thursday June 12th at 1 pm meet at the Botero “plump lady” statue for a stroll through the fair (with the option of tapas)
Sunday June 15th, meet at 9 pm at the Taj Majal Indian restaurant across from McDonalds for dinner with a walk through the fair and fireworks afterward. Confirm for dinner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special event: Saturday May 24th, visit to the Hermitage below Medina Sidonia, 12 noon to 2 pm, 2€ donation. Optional coffee at Venta Machín (Medina Sidonia) 11 a.m.
Carlos, the hermit at the hermitage, will explain some things to us in Spanish. The ermita is near the aerodrome below the town. It is built on a Roman road and has a tower built by the Romans.
Meet at 11 for optional breakfast at Venta Machin or at ermita at 12 noon.
Today we will meet in town at Sala Box café at 11. It is near the Longuera health center and Urbisur. Weather-permitting, we may take a walk.
Have a good weekend!
We will meet in Chiclana on Sat Feb 22, 12 noon, near the Cafeteria at Eroski to carpool. We will drive to Jerez and attend this Open Doors event sponsored by Reverde Cooperativa Andaluza Agricultura Ecológica.
There will be a market with a variety of local organic products including beer, wine, handpainted clothing, ceramics, cheese and of course olive oil.

Creative Handpainted Clothing and Textiles by Tomate Colorao
Cheese by Granja Puerto Carillo
Beer by Comando Cervecero La Orden Del Caos

The open doors event includes a visit to the vegetable garden, workshops for children and adults and also a bar to have organic drinks and snacks.
The event seems worth a visit. If you’re interested in joining us remember we will be carpooling from Eroski or you can go on your own and meet us there.
Bring a sandwich! We may take a walk later on in Jerez.
