Costa del Sol- Part 2

Most of our time spent in Costa del Sol was eating or driving around.  It was our starting point to other places and destinations.  As I mentioned in my post Costa del Sol this was home base for the next week.  It was called Forrest Hills.  Though we did not stay around town to much, we really enjoyed it.  Our place was comfortable and cozy, but we did not get to fully appreciate it the way it was designed.  We were to busy, and always on the go, which is a typical vacation for us.

This is more like a kitchenette than a kitchen.  The only “cooking” I did here was to prepare sandwiches to take on the go with us.

Obviously, the only rooms we got to really see and use the most during our stay.

The drive up to our place.

Just some random shots while touring around. I love old buildings.  Their attention to detail and the architecture are just amazing and very fascinating to me.  This is some old  Muslim/Moorish building.  I have no idea what it is, but I thought it was gorgeous.  I think it was some kind of a market place.

There are castillos and very old structures everywhere you go.  On every corner, there is some beautiful, old historical site.  Churches, Basilicas, Cathedrals and Mosques are also everywhere you go.  There is also a very good blending of the very old and historic mixed with the very new and modern everywhere you go, all throughout Spain, not just the Costa del Sol area.  Water fountains and gorgeous city center displays were abundant around all the roundabouts, which are all over Spain.

And of course, there was delicious food everywhere we went.  I don’t think we had a bad meal at all anywhere in Spain.  This was another delicious post-diving early meal with Nicole.

I hope you enjoy these pictures of the Sunshine Coast, known around the world as Costa del Sol.  There is still so much more of our trip to come.  Ciao for now.

  1. Wow! You are really making the most of your trip! I hope it was affordable because the room looks kind of sparse compared to the states and the food looks a little bland…hopefully it wasn’t. I loved yesterday’s post because it surprised both my husband and me that the Med would be COLD water!! We looked it up on the map, trying to figure out where and why the only thing he could think of was maybe the mountain runoff fed cold water into the area you were. I liked the one clear pic you got of the colorful fish, that was another surprise, that the water was cloudy. Glad you are really enjoying yourself!

    1. Thank you. We did make the most of our trip. There are still a few more posts left. The Med is cold because it is where the Mediterranean meats the Atlantic Oceans. The Atlantic Ocean is much colder than the Mediterranean Sea is. That’s also why the eater is so murky. It is because two major bodies of water are constantly coming together in a turbulent way, or at least that is my understanding of how it works. 🙂
