Just back from Spain

 We got back from Spain in the early hours of Saturday morning.What a shock we got!Driving to Malaga airport the temperature was 32 deg.We got off the plane in Liverpool and it was 9 deg.We then drove 40 minutes back home to North Wales in torrential rain.We started our Spanish trip with two days in Grenada.What a lovely city.The above photo was taken in the Alhambra.Fortunately we had booked tickets on line a few weeks ago.There were none available on the day for the Nisrid palace which is amazing.
 Look at this amazing ceiling.I could bore you with loads of photos but this is just a taster.
 We then moved on to Belamedena where we joined our daughter,son in law and our two gorgeous granddaughters(Emily 7 and Ruby 4) for ten days.Sarah had found a villa in Belamedena Pueblo,the old village up in the hills.It had three bedrooms,two bathrooms and this wonderful view from the terrace.It was just a ten minute drive to the beach but we had our own pool which the girls loved.
 This is our terrace complete with BBQ and a pizza oven.
 A typical street in the village.
A square in the village.
It was very quiet on the Costa del Sol.The beaches were empty.I don't think I would like it in July and August.The sun shone and we shared a brilliant holiday with the family.Lots of lovely memories for us to look back on.What a shame we couldn't bring the sunshine back home with us.Five weeks at home and then off to France for a week.Being retired is such hard work(not)!!


  1. Your holiday sounds just lovely and such a lovely area to be in too.
    It is quite chilly here though isn't it? Hope you weren't affected by the flooding in Wales that we heard about.

  2. Thank you for your kind comment on my blog tonight. Perhaps, I ask shyly, we might be able to meet up in Chaumont, for example over the summer. A pleasant thought.
