The second photo is what it usually looks like.
The view towards Costa del Silencio was equally spooky - it simply wasn't there. As if aliens had descended and just wiped the whole place out. After buying a dress - retail therapy for shock - I had a restorative coffee with my daughter, We had both taken photos to show our other halves, on the basis that they wouldn't believe us otherwise. Then I returned to my car,. See that notice-board on the left? Costa del Silencio had reappeared, the sea mist had blown or burned away, and things were back to normal.
