As always, a great opportunity to take a few pictures of the stunning scenery around us.

Our intention was to visit an english language bookshop in Mollina but unfortunately it was closed so we continued to the nearby historic town of Antequera.
Recalling my last visit a year ago, we parked near to the bullring and walked the short distance to the main shopping area.
The patio was stunning in its architecture.
We continued our exploration, heading onwards and upwards to the ancient fortress that overlooks the town.
The main thoroughfare ends at the Plaza San Sebastian.
The Real Colegiata de Santa Maria de la Mayor dominates the Plaza.
The entrance to the ancient 14th century "Alcazaba" is also in the Plaza though since my last visit, a small entrance fee is now charged....but well worth it.
The main Parade Ground.
Looking through to the "Torre Blanca" (White Tower).
Bruce and Russ enjoying the scenery and the fabulous views over Antequera.
Incredible views, even though today was slightly overcast with occasional light showers.
A thoroughly enjoyable day out in good company and a great destination with much more to explore on another occasion.

Pauline and Bill, clearly devoted to each other.
A toast to health and happiness by Bill.
Russ and Steve in conversation against the backdrop of the Sierra de Grazalema.
The joint wedding cake, absolutely delicious.
