Spain 2012

A well-timed week in Mijas, near Malaga. While biblical rain fell back home, we didn't see a cloud for a week!

Cablecar up from Benalmadena


James and me on top


A Harris Hawk lands on my head!

Did I mention the garden? Same scene - evening light this time


I'm being chased


Trying, and failing, to hide

Amazing view from the top of the Rock, looking north back to Spain




View south. Africa




Beer goggles? A couple of items that summed up my holiday!


James pushes me in for my midnight swim


I must straighten those legs - but I had had a few beers


Messing in the pool
