Last night the annual fireworks display in Lloret was bigger and better than usual, here we have a few shots...but they just don't do it justice at all !
The show started at 10pm and lasted for 20 minutes. Thousands of people had come into town to watch this fantastic show which had everyone applauding at the end !

Photos taken at Santa Clotide Gardens in Lloret de Mar.
These immaculate gardens are a very popular attraction with many visitors to Loret. With an entrance fee of only about €4, here you can wonder round these very peaceful gardens, where the only thing you can hear is the birds and the sea below the cliffs. You also have fantastic views of the rugged coast line from the cliff tops.

Frigiliana has several times been voted the prettiest village in Andalucia. Lying 56kms from Malaga its fast becoming a very popular excursion for people wanting a change from the usual sun & beach holiday. The maze of cobbled streets are very narrow and steep so if you pay a visit be sure to wear a good pair of comfortable shoes and be prepared for some very steep hills!

Malaga is also the birthplace of the Spanish actor Antonio Banderas husband of American actress Melanie Griffiths.
In the city centre here you will find an abundance of smart designer shops, cafes and restaurants alongside the very well preserved historical buildings. One of the best shopping centres is the Larios centre which is only a short walk from Malaga train station. As you come out of the main front entrance turn left and its only a few minutes walk. One familiar department store here is the Dunns store, always a favorite of mine back in the UK !
