Flag of Spain  , Andalusia,
Saturday, August 4, 2012

We were up and packed by about 9am. We said goodbye to Jackie and Stephen, grabbed a bit of breakfast and got on the highway.
  Just another day of touring through Spain!
Had some laughs along the way enjoy the pics from our "guardrail tour" traveling at warp speed in our VW Golf! Despite the hilly and mountainous terrain, the freeways are remarkably efficient. The posted speed recommendation is usually 120k so travelling at 140k is not terribly out of bounds.
We arrived at Casa Bellavista in late afternoon. The drive from town (Riogordo) is described by the family as exciting, dangerous, adventurous and exhilarating. When we got to the driveway (a steep drop followed by a sharp left turn) Val and the girls bailed out of the car and walked down. Jon and I stayed with the car as it careened down the hill. All 5 of us made it safely to the front door  in our own way The villa is stunning. It is set on a hillside with beautiful views in all directions. There is a private pool, outside eating areas and extensive patios. Our first impression of the place is excellent. A nice glass of red wine on the patio should ease the memory of the "guardrail tour" for all of us.
