It has taken a while but summer is now starting to finish and autumn is on its way.
Yesterday was cloudier and cooler than it has been for ages. Also the overnight temperature on our terrace was in the low 20s for the first time last night.
Not long now until my legs will be covered up until next summer.
Things are starting to move along with installation of fibre-optic internet in Almerimar. I have heard stories of a few people having had it installed recently.
The latest thing that has happened for us is that our apartment block now has some fibre-optic cable marked Orange and Jazztel that has appeared in the comms room in our apartment block. I guess that the far end is connected to somewhere in the street.
The end of the cable in our comms room is not yet connected up to anything. I guess they will have to install some form of service distribution panel at some point. Then we will be able to connect to individual apartments.
The article here on the Portal Ejido site has the details.

One of our readers, Peter W, has been in touch saying that he was playing golf at Almerimar today and he met a new guy who said he is going to be the course starter for the busy time over the winter period. It is a Swedish guy named Carl.
So I guess it looks like Carl will be the person using the new starters hut when it is ready.
Further to the story yesterday. Here is a photo of where the new putting green will be located. This is a zoomed in and cropped picture so sorry it is a bit fuzzy.
Christina G has been in touch with the attached photo and a message that municipal sports activities for 2016/2017 will start in Almerimar on 19 September 2016. You can sign up for activities at the town hall office (located at the back of Porto Fino).
Work on the chiringuito and starters hut on the 1st hole on the Master course is continuing. When we were playing in the regularidad competition yesterday it looked like they were sorting out the provision of water and electricity to the area.
The other thing that they have started work on is the creation of a small putting green at the back corner of the 1st tee. They have dug out some of the existing grass and look to be getting ready to lay the putting green at the back corner of the tee. Close to where the official white tees are located.
