Semana Santa has been sunny but the temperatures have been tempered by a persistent wind, El Poniente, which blows from the west.
Today, Domingo de Resurrección, the wind finally dropped and the fabulous coastline of the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata looked its best.
We went to Los Escullos in the morning to walk along the cliff path towards San Jose.
We encountered other walkers and cyclists taking their morning exercise, and the beaches of the Cabo de Gata looked as if they were going to be busy.
The wonderful light and colours of the sea and rocks were complemented by the abundance of spring wild flowers growing along the cliffs and shore.
If you click on the photos they will enlarge.
