It was a gorgeous day today.. fabulously hot, with just the right amount of cool breeze to knock it down a notch.  I took my scooter out for a spin, and here are a few of the pics that I got.  Enjoy!

On a clear day, you can see for miles. And what a beautiful day it is today as well.  After all that dreadful wind, the sea and the skies have returned to normal, leaving behind, smooth seas and crystal blue skies.  There is a view off my front porch that I never tire of, the way the early morning sunlight hits the red roof tops and white wall below me can be really quite stunning.  Notice the Agave’s and the beautiful flowering yuccas we have right outside our door.

Okay, so this post has nothing to do with Salobrena, but it does have something to do with me, therefore you should find it EXTREMELY interesting. My niece has just graduated high school with a 4.0 grade average. Highest is 4.0 and has been invited and has accepted to attend Santa Cruz University to study Physics. She has also been given a full scholarship on which to do so.  Not only that, isn’t she gorgeous!!!

How proud are we as a family...I ask you.

Yeah, more readers submissions.  Thanks to Peter and Ruth Wilkins again, for these latest submissions.  The Wilkins have come to Salobrena many times, and luckily for us, they brought their camera.  Enjoy!

Please be inspired by these shots to either come and visit us, or send along some of your own favourite snaps. Cheers

A reader and recent visitor to our fine town just sent me these fantastic photos to put on the blog this morning.. As you can see, he got some great shots.  Photos and captions come courtesy of Gareth Hopkins, and I thank him immensely.

Just an aside, these are actually called chosers.  They are built by the Spanish as a place to get out of the sun when at the beach. Inside they can be quite ornate and unique.  A friend of mine has had one for years, and inside there is furniture, a bar set up, mats etc.. They are a great place to party.. Some are absolutely huge too.

My first reader submission, these 3 photos come compliments of Peter & Ruth Wilkins, who have actually been to Salobreña a few times and stayed in some of the houses I take care of.  Without further delay here they are.  I have to say, my favourite is the first one.  You got lucky!
