Is that hotel's name Beehive? :) JM, I guess you spent your weekend at this hotel and went swimming in the beach. How lovely.

It does look like a honey-comb. Thanks for giving us the two perspectives!

If I didn't know better, I'd swear I was look at a building in Florida. We must have thousands upon thousands that look exactly like that - hotels and condos.

Probably not as exotic a setting, though.

Great shots, JM!

Lois said...

Jacob is right! We do have our share of those kinds of buildings here in Florida. Looks like they have an amazing view from their rooms!

The place is lovely, I mean the sea and the view from the windows must be stunning, but I'm not sure if I'd really like to stay in this hotel.

I hope it's prettier on the inside. :-)

The title is excellent! It really does look like a beehive and I suppose it must be buzzing too.

Apparently, all the bees are out and about at this moment. (Or maybe they're just ducking tennis balls.)

I simply could not live in something like this. It would do my head in.

It is very much like a beehive, and also like the skin of a pineapple.

Jim said...

Nice shot, you described it perfect.

Unfortunately we have destroyed a lot of the sea front with those beehives!!!
