Over the past few days we’ve had Cathy staying with us. I met Cathy online through blogging and was delighted when she accepted my invitation to stay, so I could show her some of the lovely towns and villages, east of Malaga.

This post is re-blogged from Cathy’s own blog, in which she describes our precious time together.

in search of a thousand cafés

Saturday, July 13 :  This evening we head out to the town of Torre del Mar , a largish seaside town and busy summer beach resort on the Costa del Sol , boasting one of the longest and widest beaches along the coast.  We meet Ross and Daniella, Marianne and Michael’s neighbors, and wander along the streets of the town, trying to decide where to eat.  We come across some alien-looking plants along the way.

Marianne wants to go inside the bar section of El Yate, which means The Yacht, because it’s a lively place and has great ambiance.  Tonight it’s so lively, we can’t even find a table or a place at the bar.  Instead we opt to sit outdoors.
