Say, Watermelon!

My sister Dale used to say "Watermelon!!!" instead of "Cheese!!!" when she smiled for a photo. It would result in a big, still cheesy, smile.

WATERMELON!!!

As for San Geraldo, this is his idea of lunch. A bit of egg salad and a little slice of watermelon.

NO CHEESE.

The Man Bun

Not everyone is a fan of the style. However, if I had hair, I would probably try a man bun.

But, trust me, even if you have a serious aversion to the man bun (for example, Natalie at Knatolee's World), you might actually find something else to like in these photos taken around Fuengirola.

(Click the images for bigger buns.)


MAN BUNS.
MEN'S BUNS.
THE END.

Wading With The Virgin

Saturday, we began the night of the Fiesta de la Virgen Del Carmen watching from our terrace as the procession arrived from the church in the centre of Los Boliches and turned west onto the Paseo. Then we headed downstairs to watch their progress. We slowly worked our way onto the beach to greet their arrival, entry into the sea, and the fireworks that followed.

I stood happily ankle-to-hip–deep in water (that unpredictable surf) while I took pictures. San Geraldo stayed dry but within shouting distance. We were tired and blissful when we walked home hours later. The Virgin and her entourage continued through Fuengirola. for another hour (or more) and the partying on the street below continued into the wee hours of the morning.

THIS FAMILY OF THREE STOLE OUR HEARTS.
THEY STOOD LIKE THAT THROUGH THE ENTIRE SHOW.
