I though I would post a couple of pics of Salobreña from up the Monte, so that people that may be coming to the area could get a feel for just where things are geographically.

Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear.

To give you an idea, it takes about 10 minutes to drive from Salobreña to the golf region, and walking from La Caleta to the golf course is doable, but it better be your only activity that day.  If driving, you only need to go a little bit further to visit the bird marshes for some excellent quiet time and bird watching.

Entrance to La Caleta with all the new builds. Alert Marina on the way!

The blossoms will be gone before we know it.

Who can resist her?

You're not in Kansas anymore.

You can't make this stuff up.

Well you can’t have lived here, or visited the area and not know that the we have a lot of almond trees in the area.  We even have an urbanization called El Monte de Los Almendros,  Almond Mountain to the  linguistically challenged.  Anyway, it is at this time of year that the almonds come into bloom, and the sprinkling of pale pink petals can be seen all over the place.

A few years ago the boss man and I  stayed in a little town called Casabermeja near Malaga,  it is surrounded by almond orchards for as far as the eye can see. It is just spectacular to see row upon row of flowering  almond trees.  Trees that flower now will be giving beautiful luscious fruit come September.  Here are a couple of shots that I took yesterday up the Monte.

Mother Nature Rocks!

I look forward to seeing you in my polvorones next Christmas!

So pretty.
