Welcome to a new blog section on Arguineguin.net where we share some photos from our daily walk with you.
We understand that not all of our readers have social media and our posts often get lost in the feeds so here we will share daily pics or news from Arguineguin.
12pm Midday Walk
Today’s lunchtime walk had a new feeling in the air. That is, as of today Spain is out of the state of alarm and into the ‘New Normal’. Despite the end of the estado de alarma, there are still rules in place such as wearing a mask, social distancing and limits on gatherings of people.
We start today’s walk in the Plaza Perez Galdos where we found the main church Iglesia de la Nuestra Señora de Arguineguin in session with COVID safe measures.
On our last blog walk in Arguineguin, we went early at 08:00am on a Saturday morning before people headed to the beach so you will see a big difference in these photos.
We walked past 2 play parks today and both were still sectioned off with police tape. Children have since found other places to play and gather.
Walking under the main road through el tunel, you’d be mistaken into thinking there was nobody around, but as we turn the corner onto Calle Miguel Marrero Rodríguez, it’s clear where everybody is.
Las Marañuelas beach was full of islanders enjoying the first day of Summer. While it looks crowded, the top road was more of a problem where people were gathering to drink cans from the Spar Express in the pathway.
La Lajilla Beach was also very busy today.
Thanks for joining in this Sunday walk, we hope you’ll join us on the next one. 🌸
