This afternoon we escaped to El Playazo de Rodalquilar as we were trapped at home all day yesterday. We were having a gas boiler, which works in conjunction with our solar heated water tank, installed in the kitchen and, at the same time, the technicians finally came to fit our satellite internet system. At last we are no longer cut off from the world.
Although it has been a pleasant, sunny day today, the beach was deserted except for a few other dog walkers. Digby braved the sea for a swim but said that the water was getting colder.
I collected shells and the dogs had splendid fun exploring the beach and investigating interesting smells, but what inspired us most was the extraordinarily beautiful quality of the light striking the valley when we returned.
Clouds were building up inland but El Valle de Rodalquilar was bathed in late afternoon sunshine. Digby took these dramatic photos.
