Early this morning we walked down the Rambla del Granadillo near Las Hortichuelas. The weather has been a little unsettled in Southern Spain but it was pleasantly warm down this sheltered track.
We were able to enjoy the changing flora. The grasses are turning colour as they seed, but the thistles are coming into flower and will soon look their best.
We passed some tall phlomis, with striking yellow flowers.
Along what was once the river bed, where it is still damp, a row of white poplars – an unusual sight in Almeria.
We encountered no other walkers but the Sunday morning cyclists were out as usual.
One beach we did not mention during the girls’ holiday last week was the famous movie beach Monsul. When we went there it was quite breezy and we did not stay long as nearby Genovese was more sheltered and suitable for children.
Izzy and Ellie, though, wanted their photo taken where Harrison Ford and Sean Connery stood in “Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade”.
