{Trip to Spain} Personal Summer Travel to Spain rest and rejuvenation | Kimberly Kay Photography

My uncle aka second father…recently retired from his career as a lawyer and took a leap of faith and moved to Spain to follow his dreams of living a wonderful peaceful retirement.  I was incredibly lucky to be not only invited for a visit, but to be funded and hosted by my Uncle as well. So off we went… my beautiful 12 yr old niece Annie, my 14 yr old daughter Awbrey and I on a girls bonding trip of a life time.  Neither of us had been to any part of Europe so it was quite the adventure for all of us.  In hindsight, I wish I had taken my camera out a lot more. However, I part of me really felt like unplugging and just being “in the moment” for a change.  Here are a few of my favorites from our fabulous trip to the South of Spain. We barely scratched the surface of Spain… for sure I see many trips in our future!

I was in love with this stone board walk that went on for what seemed like miles along the beach just outside my Uncle’s condo.

I’m a big shell collector…always have been. I find it peaceful and therapeutic to wall along the coast of any beach for hours in my own thoughts and collecting up little unique piece of art from the sea!

Of course the very first evening after a lovely home cooked meal from my Uncle’s amazing girlfriend…we had to hit the beach, which was just steps away from my Uncle’s condo. The girls had beautiful dresses waiting for them to enjoy… Of course they look simply adorable!

I could sit and watch these girls play on the beach all night long. They remind me so much of my sister and I when we were younger kids. “Be Still My Heart”

Typically this beach is very calm… but  Awbrey was lucky to be able to play in some waves!

This particular image goes down in history as one of my favorite shots I’ve ever captured of my daughter! So much life in this photo… a complete example of the free spirit that she is!

The moon was spectacular that first night… I capture this shot as we walked back home after some much needed quality time with my uncle  enjoying some amazing red wine and some intimate talks on the beach.

We can NOT thank you enough Uncle Tom and Aunt Lliana for your incredible generosity, hospitality,  amazing cooking and all the special talks and quality time we got to have on this trip!!!  Our memories will never be forgotten and will be cherished for the rest of our life! We love you and miss you terribly! xoxo

P.S. I’m still trying to talk Awbrey into an exchange program in Spain… she’s listening a little 🙂
