Sweet childhood memory
12 March 2002 | by marina7See all my reviews

This serial's part of my most pleasant memories from childhood. I saw it just once, I was about 8 at that time (1982), when it was broadcasted here in Yugoslavia. I strongly remember the great, warm atmosphere of Spanish coast, sweet old fisherman, nice, tender smile of Maria Garralon (but when I saw her recently in "Companeros", of course I couldn't connect her with that young teacher from "Verano Azul", it was just IMDb that brought me to it by her name). I remember that it had been broadcasted on Sundays at 1 PM and that I cried when it was finished.!Ojala! if I could see it once again!
