..... up to the mirador (lookout point) this morning.
We were late setting off for our walk as there had been a problem overnight with a burst water pipe and our apartment was without water. The owner turned up promptly with some 5 litre containers of water to keep us going until it was fixed.
We left around 9:30 and by the time we had slogged all the way up to the top the sun was well and truly up and scorching.
Thankfully it was downhill all the way back to the bar where we recovered with a coffee and cake.
The monster was still in port so the town was pretty busy. Not many of the passengers had ventured up the hill so our walk had been very peaceful.
Stunning photos, especially the flowers.ReplyDelete
Thank you. I always like to take photos of pretty things along the way!Delete
Is that you? I expected hiking kit, khaki shorts and sensible shoes.ReplyDelete
Well, they were sensible walking sandals and as I am allergic to a lot of sunscreen creams I no longer wear shorts.Delete
You should see my sensible shoes.Delete
I do have some of those too but keep them for winter walks. In this weather I prefer more ventilation!Delete
I see there was a fashion shoot happening when you reached the mirador. I am sure that I recognise that model. Wasn't it Fifi LeCoq? I hope you got her autographReplyDelete
No, that was Grandma MosesDelete
I'm sure the hike was worth it for the view down to the coast. You deserve a well earned treat tonight after all that exercise - maybe some more prosecco?ReplyDelete
You can read my mind!Delete
Nothing like coffee and cake to revive the spirits!ReplyDelete
