Today, “The Day of the Dead”, is a national holiday. The morning started overcast but with the promise of sunshine so we took the dogs for a walk along the Rambla del Granadino between Rodalquilar and Las Hortichuelas.
Soon the sun broke through with its sharp autumn light illuminating the mountains ….
…. picking out the old ruins that blend into the landscape.
After a tapas lunch in Rodalquilar we decided, as it was now a beautiful afternoon, on another walk; this time, in the form of an energetic march up to the Torre de los Lobos that overlooks the sea between El Playazo and La Isleta.
The views looking back to El Valle de Rodalquilar and the mountains behind are dramatic but the most incredible views from up here are of the stunning coastline of the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata.
First looking into the light towards La Isleta and the twin volcanic peaks.
Then looking north towards Las Negras and Agua Amarga.
