#SilentSunday Benahavis, Malaga, #SundayWalks

Taken in the car, on the way to Benahavis.

Some more winding, country roads.

Nearly there….

Roundabout with a stone tower to greet new arrivals…

A view from the top.

 

A view from the bottom 🙂

Street view.

I loved the beautiful palm trees.

This tiled stairway and colourful wall were begging a photo!

Typical whitewashed house with pretty balcony in Benahavis.

Bye for today, Benahavis…

Hope you enjoyed your visit to Benahavis 🙂

See you next Sunday for another walk 🙂

#SilentSunday ‘Plotting, but I wish I were a pantser’ #amwriting

Plotting is driving me mad!

Why can’t I be a pantser?

I think I’ll stop for a cup of tea, although what I need is a glass of wine!

#SilentSunday Almeria to Cordoba by Car #SundayBlogShare

Seen today during the three-hour trip from Almería to Córdoba:

             Almost desert-like hills of Almería

                      The Mediteranean Sea to the left.

              There were plenty of tunnels carved into the mountains.

                                                   More dry hills.

Cordoba in the distance, at the foot of the mountain range called, Sierra Morena.

Is it only me, or do any of you find you get inspiration as someone else is driving you, while you’re taking photos, jotting ideas, writing some flash fiction, checking blog posts and twitter messages etc.

The journey always seems so short!

It was sad to leave my best friend, Anna and Viven, behind in Almería, but such is life. 

At least she had a lovely birthday party, paella and cake included in the menu! 

Here’s the proof:

              Happy Birthday Anna with Vivien and Lucy!

                 I love Almerimar!

#SilentSunday #Sixwordstory #sixwordstories If Life Deals You Oranges, Enjoy!

 

Sometimes life deals us sour lemons, and others we’re lucky enough to get sweet oranges, so let’s enjoy those wonderful moments and allow ourselves to recharge our batteries and embrace happiness. Perhaps next weeks’ lemons will be sweet, too!

I hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday.

Thank you for being there 🙂

My camera picked up these beautiful early spring flowers yesterday, just for you… 

#SilentSunday #SixWordStories Spring smiles, flowers in your eyes.

#SilentSunday #SundayWalks Fontibre, Cantabria

Fontibre is a small neighbourhood, 3 kilometers from the town of Reinosa, in the province of Cantabria in the north of Spain. My mother lives a few kilometers away, and although its far away from where I live, I visit regularly.

I was there recently and took these photos.

It is famous because the source of the river Ebro, the second longest river in the Iberian Peninsula, has its source, right here, in Fontibre.

In fact, this name derives from the Latin words ‘Fontes’ and ‘Iberis’, meaning source of the Ebro.

The Ancient Cantabri, who were considered to be savage and untamable mountaineers, were one of the largest independent tribes of Hispania, to succumb to Roman rule. They were finally conquered by the Romans during the Cantabrian Wars (29-19 BC), under the reign of Augustus.  More information with maps here

It’s a stunning place for a quiet walk, and there’s a cozy rural hotel called La Posada de Fontibre and a lovely restaurant for a delicious meal called Restaurante Fuentebro, where we love to stop for lunch after a long country walk.

#SilentSunday and #sixwordstories Flowers 

Love. So beautiful yet so dangerous.


Then she smiled, lighting my life.

Seen last night as I looked out of the window from my writing desk. A fleeting and wonderful moment I managed to capture, for us.

 

Happy Sunday morning!

Thank you all for being there, inspiring me to read, to write, to think, to plan, to look forward with joy, to look back and reassess, to never give up…

Thank you my friends, followers and likers, those who drop by occasionally and those who are always there.

For those whose eyes I can see and whose hands I can touch.

For those whose minds I can hear and whose thoughts I can feel.

I wish you all back the warmth and inspiration you give me.
