The exceptional, long, green grasses which covered the countryside and mountains around the Parque Natural this spring have now dried and the landscape has taken on hues of orange and yellow as we enter summer. The photo above taken from the track between Las Negras and San Pedro yesterday illustrates this well.
There are still some wild flowers. Blue delphiniums grow alongside the path ….
…. as well as the delicate little Almerian dianthus.
Along the cliff path the yellow-flowered cats’ claws form clumps of bright colour.
There are always some dramatic photos to be taken on the final part of the walk along the cliffs down to Cala de San Pedro.
Daisy managed to feature in most of them.
The beach was uncrowded and a delight. The different tones of blue of the Mediterranean here are beautiful.
This last photo was taken looking down on the south end of the beach on our way back to Las Negras.
We had a Levante wind most of last week. South-facing San Pedro is sheltered but in Las Negras the sea off the beach has been quite rough, as this photo taken from the end of the beach last Thursday shows.
