After a few days at a marina, we headed south for some wild camping on the beaches of Malaga, Spain.
We opted to park on the sand which is not too far from a popular boardwalk. The boardwalk has restaurants, water spigots playgrounds, bike lanes and public restrooms. Since there is water, I decided to take advantage of it and sunny skies and do a load of laundry.
For roadschool today, we are woking on all the regular subjects. Here is Ava working on 7th math using Khan Academy.
The girls found some real Rice Krispies and marshmallows in the store earlier today so looks like they are in charge of dessert tonight.
Southern Spain along the Mediterranean is full of these Monk Parakeets, which are native to South America.
This spot was pretty full of other campers. 99% of them don’t have four wheel drive so it’s nice that we can sneak onto the soft sand and give ourselves a little extra space.
Playground with dangerous spinning things for the win!
Tried to take a dip in the sea but still too cold.
Kids didn’t really mind. They were really really into skating and scootering on the smooth boardwalk Haven’t had that in a long time.
And playing with bamboo sticks like light sabers.
We hopped onto the public bus and spend one day exploring old town Malaga.
Wandering the streets without a real plan is usually what happens.
Stumbled into the famous cathedral here during Sunday service.
And then we continue wandering.
Exploring the recently discovered Roman amphitheater.
And then we headed up the fortress walls.
Gotta shake all that beach sand out of his shoes first.
The view from up top.
Bathroom selfies always.
Our friends The Scenic Route mentioned a Mexican food place in town so guess where we ate?
Hit the spot for now.
Ice cream and then headed back to the beach where we left our van.
And now we continue south towards Gibraltar and Morocco.
Here’s a video Dan put together of our stay here. Enjoy!
