Yesterday we had the strongest winds so far this year as a howling gale raged in from the west and, although we had a sunny afternoon, it was not a day to be outside. Today the wind has dropped and, desperate to get out again in some warm sunshine, we headed for the coast past San Jose.
We parked on the coastal track and walked along the path down to Playa del Barronal.
The intense yellow of the genistas and glossy green of the agaves contrasted vividly with the deep blue sky.
The beach was quiet, although a few walkers were tramping along the coastal route. Some naturiists were sunbathing beneath the cliffs and the odd brave soul splashed in the sea.
It was very pleasant to relax for a while feeling the warm sunshine and listening to the sounds of the waves breaking against the shore.
