Meson do Vento

After a rest day we set off from our Hotel Roque with everyone else for what Ba described as a mostly ‘uphill day’!

Every available space is used by  Spanish gardeners for growing both vegetables and ornamentals making for spectacular displays.

On the way.

An extremely large but slow moving slug. Will it get across the road alive and in one piece?

Loggers at work with e.grandis – and not a gteenie on sight! Spaniards consider them exotics and plant them for paper making and firewood.

Bill – a new horse whisperer?

There are many donkeys in Spain but we are unsure what their role is/was.

After a cafe and bar free day we enjoyed Julia’s bar at 4pm with its cool beers and bowls of ‘monkey peanuts’ for our late lunch.

Some of us with blistered feet or sore legs took a taxi onto the pension while 5 continued the walk in.

Helen’s feet needed some nursing interventions and ended up looking like this!

The walkers eventually returned – albeit frozen. Bill needed a little coffee with his whiskey to warm himself up!!

Dinner tonight – before everyone arrived.

Dinner for 10 included ham, salad, onion tart, tortilla and bread. It was all just delicious after a big day walking.
