Got to our hotel within an hour or so, but our lock-off apartment wasn't ready, so we sat at the pool - a perfect segue to a fabulously relaxing week!
Arrived in Malaga, Spain in the early afternoon, and we were met almost immediately by our shuttle company. Picked up our luggage (nobody at customs checking anything!), got in the van, and realized, as we drove south towards Estepona, that the geography of this part of Spain is exactly the same as Southern California's! Amazed to see mostly English signs - found out later that Southern Spain, because if its proximity to Gibraltar, and its large number of British retirees, tends more towards English than Spanish language!
