corner view "the beach" spain





For this week´s corner view´s theme (thank you Sophie) Jorge and I took his motorcycle to Mundaka. We visited the town and had lunch at an outdoor terrace. (The sacrifices I make for this blog...) Mundaka is famous for surfing and is one of the best in Europe. Unfortunately, it was low tide so no waves. I love the last photo. I took it from where we were having lunch. The men at the next table, all of a sudden, yelled out, "Don´t jump!" Spanish humor...

Next week´s theme comes from Joyce and is "corner view out your back window or door."


I feel like I´m forgetting someone... if I have, leave me a message in the comments. Thanks! T I couldn´t find a link for you. 
Now if I can just find my sunscreen... Thanks everyone!

Ida Nielsen said...

Beautiful pictures as always! I wish I could be walking on the beach with tides as low as this one, I bet there must've been a lot of little treasures to look at hidden in the sand.

janis said...

oh that is so sexy and so very spanish taking la moto to the seaside. you rock my world Jane.

thanks for the great photos.

Allison said...

Isn't it great to have a man that will join you in your quests for the sake of blogging? Mine sometimes gets special photo assignments and laughs at the funning things I do for a photo.

Your afternoon lunch reminds me of our favorite restaurant that we had discovered on our honeymoon... fish that literally melted in your mouth. It just doesn't taste any better than caught fresh this morning.

Looks a lot warmer than the beaches here... I'm envious. Lovely photos.

therese said...

i really like picture no 3. it reminds me of a puzzle i had as a child.

april said...

Di said...

Wow - what a great trip! I love this project as it is allowing me to see some amazing views and ensuring that I don't take my own "corner" for granted! Off to check out a few other beaches now!

trinsch said...

i want to go to spain. now! you said surfing is good? that will be the magic word to get the man on board.

really, your images are awesome. the spanish tourist board should pay you - i'm sure you had a few of us all to put spain on our travel list lately :)

A Captured Reflection said...

What beautiful photos, stunning, the mountains, the reflections on the red boat...an eye delight!

Amber said...

Oh such sensational beach photo's. I would love love love to head there. Little piece of paradise....xxxx

state of bliss said...

Hello Jane :) All your photos are wonderful but the last one is fantastic indeed. I love the pose of the bride and the contrast beetween white dress and the background- lovely!
Thank you for sharing, have a great day,
Kasia

travelingmama said...

I absolutely LOVE the beaches of Spain. We have only seen the east coast and the south, but maybe one day we will see west coast! BTW- I think Corner View is brilliant! It is so fun seeing everyone's perspective!

kyndale said...

can I move to Spain? Sadly, no, but it sure looks beautiful. You got some great shots!

julochka said...

i really love your corner views...and i'm seeing them all over the blogosphere of late. i'd do it too, but all those links look like a lot of work and i'm rather lazy...so i'll just enjoy looking at yours.

Samantha S said...

It looks like such a wonderful place to live. I miss the beach

C.T. said...

Honey you're welcome anytime, but first let me visit lovely Vittoria first.
I'm still packing and unpacking....I'm exhausted!!!!! So if you're free this weekend.....help me!!! lol

outi said...

oohh! aaahhh! these are gorgeous! kind of the way i like the beach life too.
i´m packing my flipflops and heading there soon if you keep on posting these kind of photos..

MyrtilleD said...

J'adore cette plage entourée de verdure et de collines. It's great!

No beach in Paris but we happened to go to Oléron this week-end! I think you forgot me too. Have a good day

(I don't know how is my english...)

Jeannette said...

I think I´m going to do the Heidi Klum-Seal thing....to get re-married every year. Just to get my wedding picture taken on that rock. ;)
Beautiful pictures as ever!
Big hug, Jeannette

Kristina * said...

you are so lucky to live in a place where you can sit at the harbour in the sun and have some fish and a glass of wine!

i'll be in italy and the south of france theís summer and hope to do lots of that - can't wait...

p.s.: that picture of the lonely (?!) bride is quite dramatic and i like spanish humour :)

Kari said...

Hi Jane,
the fish and wine looks like they had a good meal. Of course I love your other pics too.
Great corner view.

nicki said...

Wow, what a great place!

Crescent Moon said...

Wonderful pictures! That last one looks like it should be in a bridal magazine.
I hope that lovely lunch at the beach wasn't too much of a hardship for you. ; )

Pamela said...

Great pictures, Jane, and thanks for adding me to the group!

la lune dans le ciel said...

toujours beaucoup d'humour dans tes posts...et de nourriture !
A bientôt !

Joyce said...

Jane- do you think next time you can make room on the bike for me?!! Beautiful photos!

Sophie said...

Beautiful pictures.
I love these.
Sorry but i have a problem with the net.
I will post my corner in a few days.

Bohemian girl said...

I am probably the only "landswoman" (according to the dictionary) in this corner view pond. I have to admit that all the sea and ocean pictures drive me slightly crazy. I actually feel like, looking at them, I must have had something in common with the sea in my past life.

BlueMoon said...

Hello,

I was wondering or it's possible to join the corner view people!
It's really nice to see people from the world sharing them view!

Susi

aimee said...

Dorte said...

I like that kind of Spanish humour :-) great shots and it sounds like it was a wonderful day by the beach!

Inna said...

Wow, lovely views!

Janet said...

Cate said...

Kimmie said...

Lovely pictures .... the hills and cliffs are beautiful! The architecture too .... I'm loving the Spanish humor :)

Sophie said...

I miss Spain so much! Thank you for sharing all these wonderful pictures with us Jane!

The Girl in the Yellow Shoes said...

LOVE IT! That's it, I'm coming to visit! It looks absolutely divine!

Guusje said...

Love it, Jane. Thank you for letting me join! I'm looking at the beautiful posts all day in spare moments. It's a joy!

Erin said...

I would love to be one of the girls relaxing and daydreaming on the boat. I can't think of a meal better spent than outdoors in the fresh air and sunshine. Beautiful photos..

Kathy said...

My favorite is the one of the two little girls on the bow of the boat! Precious!
Not exactly "down the shore" huh, Jane?

Cris Siqueira said...

hahahaha
i'm laughing here with the joke!!!

i love this beach and tell me: isn't a better place to eat fish then a beach?
i don't know what it is, but the taste is diferent then when you eat at home or some restaurant!!!

you forget about me!! :(
here's my link:

beijos jane!!!

caitlin said...

Someone paid me a really nice compliment the other day about my photography.. while I don't know if it applied to me, I KNOW it applies to you.

Jane, you have a gift for photographing and capturing the emotion of the picture. Thus causing me to feel the emotion. You really do have a talent.

I love the beach!

McGillicutty said...

WOW... once again you have managed to capture some terrific pictures! We are not worthy!!! I love the Spanish coast and your pictures do it such justice.
Do you think there's a way to create a Corner View site where we can all contribute? although I like they way you've linked on the side bar... I may try that if I have some time later. Gracias, Ali

Di said...

I meant to say I love that area of Spain. I went to Bilbao about 9 years back and we had a week there - but we headed west out of Bilbao and stayed between Ribadesella and Llanes - beautiful coastline!!

Oh and I managed to post my beach photo!

Lisa said...

Beautiful!!!! Love the bride and the comment is hilarious!

My cornerview isn't very beachy today...sorry.

Lisa :)

As usual, you've chosen the most beautiful photographs. And thanks for a little of the Spanish humor!

MODsquad said...

Jane! Please tell me your getting paid to take these amazing photos... because you should!! Or maybe we should be paying you to look at them... Hmmm. Yes, Spain should pay you!

Love those boats!

Happy Day!

kim said...

ho, hum, yawn, oh, sorry - just woke up after a snooze - that's how long it took to scroll through all those millions of comments :-) hey - what happens next...jump or no jump? the cynic in me was thinking "JUMP!!!! RUN FOR YOUR LIFE," but the romantic in me was wishing her the best years ever. sophie has hives and la lune dans le ciel loves that you have lots of humor in your posts, and food!

Kate Coveny Hood said...

Now THAT'S a beach that my husband will want to visit. He's a West Coast boy and loves his surfing...

Megan Coyle said...

wow, it just looks gorgeous there!

Jenell said...

Jane, I posted a corner view for the first time this week but am unsure how to add the list of links at the bottom. I started to do it by hand, but it's taking sooo long. Could you copy and past the html to me? Or is there an easier way? Thanks for your help!

A Day That is Dessert said...

lovely Jane!!

denise said...

So beautiful, as always!

MisterE said...

What a great beachtown, I wish I was there.

sunnymama said...

It looks such a beautiful beach! The last picture is fantastic, it's my favourite too :)

Jenell said...

Jane, there's so much going on in your pictures and yet there is such a relaxed feeling at the beach. Aah. Wish I was back there now! I especially loved the woman on the cliff. hee-hee

I knew a girl who was blue. So she painted her world pink. xoxo
