We boarded the plane under grey skies and heavy rain, but broke through to sunshine. Arriving in the Costa del Sol in Spain we were greeted at the hotel with pleasant warm temperatures and a chilled Cava. It’s few years since we last visited Nerja and it is good to be back, this time treating ourselves to a stay in the large hotel Rui Monica.
We have wonderful views along the coast from our balcony window and the sound of sea in our ears. A stroll around the old town takes us to the Balcón de Europa with more views of coast and mountains, to the accompaniment of Spanish guitarists.
Later as we sunbathed and sketched on the Hotel terrace we watched the skill of the palm tree pruners. Much trickier than pruning roses!
