November flowers in Spain

Due to severe uploading problems through the local internet at our hotel at the moment I post this flower posts without more comments. The beauty of November at Costa del Sol cannot be hidden.

And now it is time to prepare for Christmas flowers all over :)

Age pensioner

After 17 years on disability conditions I can from today call myself a real age pensioner .
I am as good as I can be my wife tells other people and as you see on her photo, he looks great.
Life is Great has been my motto since the first severe heart attack 20 years ago, and the logo of my blog.
This morning (after breakfast) the Hotel Director and his staff here in Spain surprised me with a bottle of Cava and some fresh fruits. In addition lots of friends and family members has sent greetings on FaceBook, Email and video song on Path. Many thanks to you all.

 Life is great even in the heavy rain outside the apartment.

Walking along the beaches

Sunday afternoon stroll along the beaches in Fuengirola where the bathing season is on the wane and the restaurants are preparing for winter. Some of the long-stayers are having their afternoon tea (or sleep) but we are still walking around between pitstops here and there. Have a nice week all over the world.

Routa de la tapa Erotica

 Today we have been walking around in Fuengirola for some Tapas and some glass of wines. Part of the restaurants we visited was included in the "Routa da la Tapa Erotica", but we are now so experienced that we know where to go for the best Tapas in the city.
 First we went to La Cepa (our favourite) to the major tapas de Fuengirola, and the "Camembert frito con marmalade y miel" and the "Langostinos con baicon y berenjenas" (photo above).
 After different tapas bars we ended up at "Sol y Mar" at Paseo Maritim where the tapa named "Playboy" was on the menu.


If you want to join in the activity at the plaza close to the postoffice, see the video above.

A trip to Puerto Banus

This morning the north-west wind was ice cold at our hotel. We therefore decided to follow my sister Gerd and her husband Arne to Puerto Banus. Arne wanted some new walking trainers and my wife was also interested in some Nike Lunarglide shoes. The prizes was however higher in Banus than in Oslo, so it will be Christmas gift instead.
Lunch at the port is mandatory and Italian food tasted great today. The restaurant was on the other side of the street by the luxury yachts at the harbour

On the way home from a nice dinner last night. The lights from the hotel and the shopping centre was mirroring in Fuengirola River.

The night of 31 October the eve of All Saints Day, is here as most of the world celebrated by children and adults dressing up in frightening masks and costumes. Halloween is thought to be associated with Celtic festival Samhain, when ghosts and spirits were believed to be abroad.
We found our ghost at the Restaurant La Farola yesterday
