This morning we paid a brief visit to San Jose.
The biggest resort in the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata was practically deserted and despite the warm, sunny weather there was no one on the main beach.
We walked along the adjacent beach were there was one swimmer and a paddleboarder with his child.
On the way home we stopped to photograph these new flags fluttering in the breeze at the entrance to a rural hotel with the twin volcanic peaks and Los Escullos in the background. They seem to be beckoning visitors so please come and visit us next year. The owners of shops, restaurants and holiday accommodation are suffering at the moment.
