The last sketch of 2014: Spain

We just returned from Spain, Benidorm. We didn't feel like spending the holidays in our grey and depressing weather, so just after Christmas we flew to Benidorm with my mother, my brother Roger and his partner Jeannette. We had very nice weather, and all in all a great time.
Except for the new years eve celebration: my mother fell and broke her wrist 10 minutes before midnight, and just after the fireworks we were driving with howling sirens through Benidorm.
We spend the first 4 hours of the new year in Spanish hospitals. Luckily the wrist was not broken badly, no problem to fly back.
Anyway: this is a sketch of old houses on the seafront of Villajoyosa, a village 10 km south of Benidorm.
The last location sketch of 2014, with the best wishes for 2015.

Fantastic! What a great way to end 2014. All the best to you and your family in the new year.

Nice sketch. I guess that when you look at it in the future, you'll have a lot of memories attached to it. I hope your mother is feeling better and that the grey weather will go away. Here, we've had a very mild spring-like holiday season but the forecast calls for winter to come back! Ugh!

yes Michael indeed, the image will tell a long story. As for my mother: the wrist was not severely broken, the cast will probably be gone at the end of the week. Unfortunately the grey weather will stay. I assume.
