Went to see our son in Marbella for a few days who lives and works there. Took 78 photos in total, here are a few of them.

This is where he lives. It’s a ground floor two bed apartment – very nice.

This is the larger pool allocated to the block he lives in. In the whole complex, there are nine pools in total.

Childrens’ pool.

Bougainvillea

Clematis

Wasp

Butterfly

Son

The happy couple!

Fortress in Puerto Banus

Hubby and fountain

Marbella Old Town

Now that’s what I call a clematis!!!

That’s all for now, I hope you weren’t too bored. I may put some more on later.

Oh Sheila you made me home sick although I don't come from Spain. It's amazing how some plants flourish in the Mediterranean region. At least we have grass and they don't have it. Look forward to seeing more of your pictures.

Wow aren't you the lucky one to have a lovely place like that to go to. I think if it were my son living there , he would get sick of seeing me. Glad you enjoyed it.

Thank you all for your nice comments. You're right Costas, we have much better grass - theirs is very spiky!

Pleased you had a good time visiting your son ... I could have done with cooling off in that azure blue pool today! .. Love to see Bougainvillea blooms ... :o)

Shirley - although the weather was really hot - that pool was absolutely freezing, there's no way I would get in it!

Once you're in it would have been fine ... trust me ... been there, done that on holidays! ... :o)

You're probably right, but I was never THAT hot nor THAT brave:o))

Ah! Marabella, Torremolinos, Fuengirola; florid window boxes, bird cages hanging outside the residents windows with canaries singing their hearts out, ancient narrow streets casted in light and shadow with gardens above seemingly hanging in mid air, cool breezy brilliantly tiled courtyards with lush tropical potted gardens with the music of splashing fountains; Making a turn around a corner, walking into mystery and entering into a revelation. The blazing hot beaches and off in the distance the snow capped Sierra Nevada mountains-fire and ice. What a lovely part of the world this is. The heat? That is what siestas are for; In the day you can dream and when night comes you can live!

I can't add anything to that statement Graterford - you described it perfectly, thank you.
