Big bikes and a fluffy poodle

Big Harleys from out of town, a fluffy poodle and its owner at the entrance to the Puerto Deportivo in Marbella this morning. What a fantastic day it’s been. If only all our Easter visitors last week could have had at least one day as good as this.

Just out of sight to the right of the picture at the entrance to the Puerto Deportivo the deckhand selling tickets for the boat cruise to Puerto Banus and back was doing brisk business. What a great morning to be out at sea with a gentle onshore breeze looking in at the Golden Mile which stretches between Puerto Banus and Marbella.

By midday the beach bed attendants had set out their beds and cushions, the trampolines had been set up and the bouncy castle was filling with air. The little tourist train trundled along the Paseo Marítimo whilst the power walkers and weight watchers worked up a thirst, sweating slightly in the warm sun.

It was that time of day when your taste buds tell you it’s too late for coffee but just right for tapas and cold beer or sangria in a beach front bar.

This was Marbella at its best.
