Rutas Saludables 2

Ruta Saludable

Huétor Tájar Airport

We spotted a notice “Rutas Saludables” on the east side of the Huétor Tájar ring road, about 100 metres before the cemetery and park, and thought we would try this walk this morning. The lane took us to through the vega away from the town until we reached the Rio Milanos where we turned left. Eventually we crossed the road to Villanueva de Mesia, and when we reached the railway bridge we turned left again back towards Huétor Tájar. It was a pleasant, flat, circular walk of about 6km on a hazy autumn morning. For most of the time the lanes took us through agricultural land, but when we were almost back at Huétor Tájar we passed a little grass landing strip for model aeroplanes where a number of enthusiasts were indulging their hobby.

Cover of "The Wise Old Boar"

I have in stock my three children’s books, “The Wise Old Boar”, The Lonely Digger” and “The Adventure of Princess the Pony”. I have decided to offer them at a special price of 10 euros a copy as part of my Christmas Promotion. You can check out the books on my web site I will post out both prints and books but have to charge for the postage. Enquiries


About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live pn a small farmer the town of Alhabia in the Alpujarra Almeriense in the Province of Almeria. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy portraiture and figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.
