We have night lights at the finca. For some reason my Partner does not like staggering around in the dark.
It’s no problem for me, as my eyesight is so poor that I don’t really need lights, I memorise where everything is, and can stagger around happily without lights if I wake up for a drink of water or whatever.
One evening, Partner captured this gecko basking in the warmth of the nightlight bulb.
As he got in, we assumed he got out, because we never saw chargrilled gecko in there.
From geckos in Spanish fincas to blocks of flats in Gib. I quite like our hallway in our block of flats, but I’m a sucker for tiles to dado height.
We have a limited budget to spend on the block so despite the nice tiles, our lighting is a plain bulb without a shade, after all, a shade would merely reduce the lighting anyway, and our residents basically want the communal areas to be clean and tidy (without paying extra money). Which they are, now I’m in charge.
Here is the hallway then, after Partner had repainted the walls and doors – and changed the dodgy light fitting too.
And back to Spain to end with another animal. A horse waiting outside the bar at 11.30pm, while his owner is inside drinking with his mates.
I posted this pic before on roughseas when I’d had a longer than expected journey on the bus back to Spain. Actually it wasn’t the journey that was long, it was waiting for buses that weren’t booked up. So, I didn’t arrive back in my pueblo until nearly midnight.
But still, after the frustration of the full buses, it was so enchanting to walk up the main street in the warm summer night to see this lovely horse standing so patiently.
