Alhaurín golf

took a few times to get this downloaded, definately a problem on here last couple of days... but, so this above is what is now alhaurin golf! this was when all the works began, must have been back in 1998 i think, full of houses now and golf courses! over on the hill in front is a sort of local folly, will get a better picture for you, its an old water tower thats been built around and now looks like a strange castle, around that side of the road they are trying to get permission for another 5, yes five golf courses and 100's of houses and apartments! cant believe it.

work was quiet again today up until the last hour when it went crazy, think everyone in town came in, goodness knows why we dont have air conditioning there! anyway, had a good day and only with two of us in today.

we went to the market at la trocha yesterday morning, i had taken pippa out earlier so we left her at home, and after the market we went down to miramar in fuengirola on the coast, and to the supermarket there eroski its called, we did nearly a weeks shopping, trouble is when you get used to a supermarket then visit another you can never get everything you want, or maybe its finding it thats the problem! it took me ages to get used to mercadona, infact i used to get moody everytime we went in there! so much so that franco now says i'm having a mercadona if i get moody about anything at all!

today would have been my dads birthday, feels like i only said that last month, but that was my step dads birthday, this would have been my real daddys'.

Love is like quicksilver in the hand,
leave the fingers open, and it stays.
Clutch it, and it darts away.

Your real dad is always by your side now, helping you, praying for you and making up for the distance that separated you for so long.

desert dreamer... i know i think most of the golf courses are pretty tough around here, all up mountain sides and deep gorges! they take between 4 and 5 hours to do 18 holes on a good day! must hunt down a photo i have from one i worked on for a while it was so beautiful there...
