... crystal clear. We climbed a big rock and I figured out that I had a orange butt pants stain from sitting on the big rock.
Our Dad bought a bat and ball it was like ping pong but without the table.
And we went to the balcony of Europe, which has a good view over the water.
The next day we went to Nerja caves and walked inside.
