This morning we walked from Las Negras along the Barranco de Las Aguilas.
Spring flowers are adding colour to the semi arid landscape.
Bushes of pink flowering cistus line the path and ….
…. little catchflies, deep pink, sprout from the sandy soil.
Turning off towards the ruins of Cortijo del Ricardillo, we soon reached the coastal path from Las Negras to San Pedro along which we returned to the village ….
…. encountering quite a few other walkers along the way.
Flowering esparto grasses along the cliffs created a striking foreground against the sea which was shimmering in the sunshine.
