First Pink Saturday 2010


Umm, projects for the new year? That’s a hard one Beverley as I have got out of the habit of making plans. I was so ill for over 10 years that I never knew from one day to the next how I would be feeling so plans were kept to a minimum. However, I am so much better now that I have already booked a holiday flight for May.

We are off to Spain for two weeks to spend with our friends who are travelling around the world this  year and will be in the Costa Del Sol for six weeks or so.That is after a trip to  the Far East in January for 9 weeks followed by a 3 week trip to Australia. I could NOT cope with all that!

So, lets see if I have any Spanish pictures to show you?



A pretty little harbour - Puerto de la Duquesa but very different.


A brand spanking new Hummer at the world renowned Puerto Banus.


Our cruiser.


The car we use to run-around in when in Spain.

The very expensive apartments in the middle of the harbour at Belamadina


Ronda  one of the loveliest and most historical towns of Andalucia, southern Spain.

The bridge which straddles the 100m chasm below, has unparalleled views out over the Serranía de Ronda mountains.

Ronda is also famous as the birthplace of modern bullfighting, today glimpsed once a year at the spectacular Feria Goyesca. IMGP0061

The sight of so many poor donkeys pulling cartloads of people around was not to my liking at all.


The leafy Plaza Duquesa de Parcent,  boasts a convent, two churches, including the toy town bell tower of the iglesia Santa Maria de Mayor, and the handsome arched ayuntamiento (council) building.

So, to summarise  my project for 2010 is to have another wonderful Spanish holiday and to discover new interesting places.


  1. Lovely to know you are already making travel plans for this New Year glad your health has improved, know those years were very hard on you dear.

    Spain calls to me often - even though I've only seen that tiny Northern area near the Mugfords - I would love to return and see more some day. Not sure whether we'll be over in the early part of the year - but I'm thinking Christmas perhaps. I'd love one more at home!!!! We have plans for New England again over the 4th July, perhaps going on up to Montreal and Quebec with Jasmin!

    Anyway, who knows what's in store for 2010 - just wish for good health for us all, that's most important.

    Hope the kids are all well now. Take care and Happy New Year to you all from us.

  2. What a wonderful trip it will be. I hope you have loads of fun and take lots of pictures for us to see. Happy New Year and Happy Pink Saturday.

  3. Your trip to Spain sounds lovely. I enjoyed your photos. Wishing you all a very happy and healthy New Year.
