I decided to let Teddy, my Gotz Toddler Erik, come along with us as he has been a particularly good boy modelling for me last week! He borrowed his baby brother's dungarees (which were a little bit tight!) as somewhere in the middle of modelling he seems to have lost his only pair of shorts!!! Oooops! So I know what I'll be making him when I next get a moment! :)
Excuse so many photos, I just love this boy to bits! :)
Brian said "tell HER to wave at the camera!" I said "It's a BOY! Teddy, give us a wave!"
This cannon is situated near the lighthouse, there's no plaque or anything but it looks like it's been hanging around there quite some time!
The good thing about being small is when your little legs get tired, you can have a nice snooze in mum's handbag :)
Brian says "Take a photo of HER in front of the lighthouse!" I said "how many times do I have to tell you, he's not a girl, he's a boy!" "Looks like a blooming girl to me!" he says!
This is a working lighthouse which was completed on the 1st May 1864. It has a height of 39 metres above the sea and 26 metres above the ground.
The lighthouse was built using one of the towers of the ancient Castle which was destroyed by Napoleon´s troops in the early nineteenth century. In the walls you can see remains of a Roman villa with numerous mosaics, which we have yet to visit. Next time we go to Torrox we plan on visiting the Roman remains as I believe they are particularly well preserved.
The sweetest little profile.....
