At the beginning of the summer,
Building started down by the lake.
It was a lovely place to sit and contemplate the sunset.
(That’s Ruby posing.)
A few days ago, I went back to the lake
And could see that the construction was now finished.
Turns out that the local caravan park
Has built a sauna for its guests
On the shore of the lake.
(Still plenty of room for Simmie to swim!)

Work is busy so I’ll only be posting once this week.
Is that an angel —
Or an elephant —
Trumpeting across the horizon at sunset?
(In other news, WordPress informs me
That I’ve been blogging for nine years!
Thank you for sticking with me all these years.)

I spent a hot Sunday morning wandering around Malaga.
First stop – the main plaza in the old town
Where there was a wonderful photo exhibition by Salgado.
Then a quick stop at Cafe Central with its famous mosaic.
The empty glass of coffee sums up how I feel (horror vacui)!
My eye was drawn to the symmetry of the cloth
Protecting the main shopping street and old buildings from the sun.
Malaga Cathedral attracts a lot of visitors
With its fine architecture.
I was more fascinated by the neglected rear of the cathedral,
Where hundreds of cobwebs caught bird feathers
From the pigeons who live there.

Sometimes, the best part of a sunset
Is when the sun sinks below the horizon.
Then all sorts of magic can happen:
A strawberry sizzle in the sky
Or the rich perfection
Of sky kissing waves at the beach.
(I’m on my last week of holiday and want to spend as much time away from the computer as possible, so may not be around too much.)
The blazing sunset
Sets the world on fire
And paints the sky
In the colours of fire and passion.
(Photos taken on a beach in Conil de la Frontera, Spain.)

UPDATE: I’m sick at the moment and won’t get round to visiting you all.
Sometimes a sunset
Just makes you shout out with joy:
I ❤ sunsets!
The beaches of Conil in Spain
Were perfect for enjoying
A dazzling setting of the sun.

I’m still in Spain.
Just checking in to say hi and send some sparkles your way.
Back next week!
(Photo from Portugal last year.)
Gearing up for the last three days of work,
And then surfing in Spain.
(I won’t be around to comment on your blogs – but wish you all a lovely couple of weeks!)
This photo was taken in Ericeira, Portugal, last summer.
The Our World meme will be up and running as usual.
A choir of glorious rays
Breaks over the English countryside.
And you can almost hear the angels sing.

Swedish midsummer is all about dancing around the maypole to live music.
This year, we arrived at the local farm a little too late —
We could hear music in the distance;
But when we arrived at the maypole —
Slender against the cloudy sky —
The musicians were already putting away
Their instruments for the day.
We stopped to admire each ring of the maypole
Bedecked in flowers (woven there by hand).
The day did not go as planned,
But it’s how you roll with life that counts.
