A lovely trip to Gaucin and Ronda

It was a great surprise to be invited to our friends, in the beautiful white washed village of Gaucin, in the mountains north of Marbella, for a get together, for friends with alpacas. Jane and John have moved into their new stunning home with views across to Gibralter. I could n't wait to catch up with great friends, and of course have a nosey around their new place, which is now finished. Alan and I saw the new house whilst finishing touches were being done! As usual there was a beautiful lunch for us all, with a drop of the ole vino! Good times!

Can you spot the rock of Gibralter?

Beautiful little girl!

What a house!

We were also lucky enough to be invited to stay that night with two of our closest friends, although sadly not in distance, Mike and Linda. It meant that the following day we would only have a journey home of three hours rather than four! We had a nice meal out in the evening in a well known chain of "restaurants" that cannot be named for risking Linda's reputation! She was happy to eat inside, but was ready to make a dash for the door if need be ;-) We chatted late into the night, and had such a lovely time. Thank guys, can't wait to do it again! And I must say we love the way your menagerie is growing. It was two dogs, which has now grown to four dogs, plus your gorgeous chickens, and extremely handsome cockerel!
