A Long Walk

We awoke to a blue sky and sunshine coming through the windows of our cave. As we have no one overlooking us we slept with the curtains open. After a late breakfast ( served from 9.30 - 11.30! ) we set off to walk around the lake. Including a stop in a bar for lunch it took us nearly five hours but was well worth the effort.

We started heading east where we are close to the end of the lake, initially going up the road. There was no traffic and the only sounds were the multitude of bird songs. Most of them were In Spanish and unrecognisable but we certainly heard reed warblers and cuckoo and saw various common tits and finches. At the end of the lake were extensive reed beds with a hill on the far side. There were two large birds of prey patrolling this area. They were possibly harriers of some sort & appeared to be male and female. We crossed the small torrent over a wooden bridge then followed a good dirt path down the opposite side of the lake. Again lots of birds were obvious and also masses of wild flowers. There were poppies, snapdragons, broom and wild thyme and rosemary amongst others brightening the ground beneath the olive groves.

At the far end of the lake is a small village with several bars and the beginning of the next lake in the chain. We had lunch in a bar at about 3.00 pm then wandered back to the hotel for a siesta.

Rain is forecast for tomorrow so we may light our wood fire and spend the day in bed!
