Another beautiful day today. On my morning stroll I took these photos. One is of the lane behind our house, with the almond blossom in the foreground.
The other is of a neighbouring cortijo which is in need of renovation. We understand that this is for sale and are awaiting details from the owners so we can publicise it.
As the Kangoo van can ford the river again and it is a public holiday to celebrate yesterday’s Dia de Andalucia, we decided to take an outing to the historic town of Montefrio about 20 minutes drive to the north. One brief visit is not enough to take in everything there is to see in this fascinating place. An Arab fortress crowns a precipitous rock beneath which the oldest buildings of the town are clustered. Climbing the steep, narrow streets, we kept coming upon intriguing corners with glimpses of the distant panorama. No shortage of subjects to paint or photograph in this most picturesque of Andalucian towns.
