Another beautiful day, so we decided to walk from Las Negras to San Pedro. Last summer you could drive part of the way, but now the track is closed to vehicles so the walk takes over an hour.
The little valley looked fresh and lushly green in the bright sunlight.
Succulents with big, conical heads of yellow flowers flared with vivid colour against the deep blue sky.
The old fort keeps watch over the idyllic cove but there are no pirates now.
Looking into the light, the tall palm trees just above the beach were silhouetted against the sky.
San Pedro is at its best on a fine winter’s day. Gone are the colonies of hippies and campers who squat here all summer. The shacks and primitively restored ruins are mostly deserted.
We passed a young man sitting outside one, reading in the sunshine, and a couple sunbathed naked outside another.
Some of the gardens looked well-tended and colourful with suculents, roses and geraniums ….
…. so perhaps there are more people living here than are apparent.
The beach, too, was virtually deserted and the waves were lapping virgin sand.
Hope you like the photos.
