Wandering the Costa del Sol

Wandering in Spain's Costa del Sol this morning was pure joy.

Malaga's Alhambra is a 14th century fortress/palace full of courtyards and gardens, mosaic and brickwork. I loved every detail!

I'm working as artist in residence on Grand Princess, sailing for Barcelona, Monaco/Nice, Gibraltar, Naples, and Ajaccio (Corsica.) If you have travel tips for me in those city, please email.

And whether you do or not, go on an armchair trip with me as I share a few highlights from my sketching tour of the Mediterranean.

Barcelona is wonderful - well, so is the Alhambra (!!!!!)
In Barcelona, find as much Gaudi as you can - it is everywhere! Park Guelle (sp?) is magnificent with the mosaics. I remember a restaurant called Los Caracoles (the Snails?) It was fun, at 23 years of age. And La Sagrada Familia is beyond magnificent...... takes your breath away.

Have a wonderful trip. my friend!

And I can't think of a more deserving person to enjoy a gorgeous place like this. Thank you for sharing these beautiful photos. It looks like you couldn't have had better weather!

Dear Sharyn,

Oh my, what a tough job you have there! ;) Thank you so much for taking us along; it's just the thing to escape the waning summertime "blahs."

Holy Cow! How did you get a gig like this? I am green with envy. First, I find out my friend is heading off for Hilltop Farm in England next week and YOU are in Spain! The only traveling I ever get to do is from one art show to another... I need a vacation. Have a great time!
