Dancing down at Fuengirola this week and hoping to make a trip down to the lighthouse (Faro) later in the week but, as chance would have it, I had to drive to the far end of the town to see if there were tickets available for tomorrow's opera, Too early for cinema, so carried on another mile to the faro and then walked back along the coast to the hide overlooking the sea.
