Hi Guys,

here is some pics from my holiday in spain in July 2006. The place is called "Chiclana de la Frontera" and is located on the atlantic coast close to the border of Portugal. The weather was very good with temperatures around 42C (108 F). But because the wind (levante) was blowing all the time it was not to hot. Here is the Hotel (All inclusive club) complex were we stayed:



and a view from the room:



The beach was long and the sand was very nice and clean:



Not a day without waves:



And the windsurfers had a great time in the strong winds:



In the evening the wind was calmer and the sundown was marvellous:



Because of the warm and dry weather combined with heavy winds and people throwing away their cigarettes carelessly, there were constant fires in the surrounding forrests and bushes:



So the firefight helicopters were flying around all over the place:



This area of Spain have some really well designed golfcourses:



And cause this is planetarmour, here is a late tiger :



And yes, I did make it up and down for par...

Thanks for sharing the pics. Looks like you had a great time.

I was in Spain as well during July but in the southern part - Costa del Sol and Barcelona. The weather was wonderful and the people were super friendly.

I think I need another holiday!

Basically, it's hotter than a snake's ass in a wagon rut.

Hi,
thanks for showing. We had a rather warm holiday too in Crete. And by accident I happened to find 3 model shops in town of Chania. Best part, not that I could tell my family that :lol:
