This is the view from the terrace of Los Caracoles Restaurant and Hotel, on the scenic road from Torrox pueblo to the pretty, mountain village of Frigiliana. Towards the bottom left you can see the white village (pueblo blanco) of Frigiliana and, over to the right, the nearby town of Nerja, with the Mediterranean Sea in the background.
This view never fails to take my breath away …. no matter how many times I see it!
And it’s exactly the kind of view that’s typical of a sunny Christmas Day, here in southern Spain.
My Christmas wish for all my readers and followers is that love, hope and happiness fill your hearts this holiday season, and may all your dreams and wishes have wings.

Thanks Ioanna – have a wonderful 2013 🙂
Warm sun, cool crisp air – that actually sounds perfect, Marianne.
Hope you’re having a fab time in the antipodes – and lots of good wishes for the New Year. 🙂
I would soooo love to show it to you, one day, Meredith 🙂
All the best for 2013. 🙂
I’d love to see it with you Marianne – I’m sure, like most of the world, it’s changed beyond recognition in some places, and I’m likely to get a bit lost! Funny, as it turned out, I spent more time in Spain in the winter than I ever managed in the summer, though I can’t say I was enraptured by winters up on the high sierra, that bone chilling cold was a bit tough – but down South … my memories of the South in the winter, and early spring, when the poppies came out, perfection. 🙂
New Years greetings from another Paradise 🙂
It is lucky your not in NZ…it is wet and yucky. I hope you are having a wonderful time in Sydney. Can’t wait to meet up Marianne…so looking forward to it.
Flying to Christchurch next Thursday, but wont be up your way until end of January or beginning of February, Jo.
I’ll bring some sunshine with me 🙂

Merry Christmas and thanks for you wishes. Spain is beautiful that is for sure. Lucky you.
Shhhh – I’m in Sydney at the moment, but don’t tell anyone! 😉
Ours was a little damp but it doesn’t really matter when you’re in the kitchen. Merry Christmas to you, Marianne. I’m just thinking about pud. I was too full at lunchtime.
All the best, Jo. Hope you managed to squeeze in a portion of pudding! 😉
A large one! Still full this morning.
Breathtaking … i is a vision I would never tire of either.
Merry Christmas … Feliz Navidad
