Short spring stay in Malaga

Normally we spend the winter season here in Andalusia, Malaga and Fuengirola. As last year however we decided to take a few weeks to welcome the summer and the warm Mediterranean climate here at Costa del Sol in early June.
 The Jacaranda tree is all over in late May and the beginning of June and the purple / blue flowers are really beautiful
 The Aqua Bar at the hotel is open for the summer season and we are once more placed in the Julio Iglesias chairs for a cava sponsored by the management
 The evenings are covered with Mini Disco for the children, and entertainment. This night it was Flamenco dancing
 When moving out of Fuengirola we arranged a meeting with our friends Grethe and Anton together with my sister Gerd in Puerto Banus. Luxury clothing, cars and ships are part of the Banus, but also some good restaurants for lunch.
 Lunch places are also a part of our regular visits to Malaga city and as often before we this time stopped at Los Gatos
In Fuengirola Restaurante La Farola is our most visited place, and here the magician Manuel Gonzalez told my wife about his FaceBook site between serving the nice dinner dishes
Weekend number two started with extraordinary heat all over Andalusia. At the coast we got 38 degrees on Friday continuing at the same level Monday 13th. In Torremolinos they were close to 40. The temp. in the hotel pool also increased nearly to 30 so most of the guests moved in and out every half hours. As shown on the image we also had no wind.

 The short stay are almost over. Tomorrow the SAS plane will bring us back to Norway and another springtime  in 2016. The sunset to the west and with Parque Fluvial and our hotell are nice.
And before the dark night covers the sky the pool-area is there to say goodbye and Hasta Luego.
