The town of VELEZ RUBIO in the province of ALMERIA

During my last trip to Spain back in July, I was travelling through ANDALUCIA my favourite Spanish community, I needed a cash point, so VELEZ RUBIO in the province of Almeria was the nearest option, very early in the morning 9 am, already 33 degrees decided to stop and seek my objective, what a delight of town this place turned out to be, immaculate, clean, lovely people so common of this part of Spain, spend a couple of hours visiting the main attraction, the Church of "Ntra Sra de La Encarnacion, taking photographs and of course sharing a few words with locals, almost forgot about the cash point. ANDALUCIA is the most populous autonomous community in Spain, the territory is devided into eight provinces, ALMERIA,CADIZ,CORDOBA,GRANADA,HUELVA,JAEN,MALAGA and SEVILLE. Photos taken 21.7.2012

P & O FERRIES "PRIDE OF BURGUNDY" is seen here at sea on her way to Dover, photos taken 16.6.2012 from the "DEAL SEAWAYS" operated at the moment by DFDS but soon on her way back to her owners, BRITTANY FERRIES to re-start the Poole/Cherbourg route. The Dover/Calais crossing despite being a 90 minutes trip is a fantastic voyage for ships enthusiasts to photograph particulary cruise ferries, always plenty of options available, the newly formed MY FERRY LINK is the latest addition to this route and a subject for future posts on this blog. "PRIDE OF BURGUNDY" was built in 1993 and has a GRT of 28.138.

Returning home on board "SPIRIT OF BRITAIN"
