I’ve had a wonderful time with my sister staying here, lazying under the spanish sun, that is still shining brightly here, no sign of autumn yet… other than the flocks of geese that fly over head on their journey to the warmer shores of Africa…  We visited our favourite restaurants, took short nature walks, collected crystal rocks for my ‘work in progress’ Earth Mandela and gave Angie some beginners tips playing golf… and she did very well… Continue reading
