After a windy week when the light has been obscured by dust from the Sahara we have enjoyed a couple of mild, soft days. They have been sunny and warm but the light has been muted due to the humidity.
Ideal weather for walking and riding in the campo and these two on horseback passed us this morning as we walked from the old castle down to El Playazo in El Valle de Rodalquilar.
There are new riding stables on the outskirts of Rodalquilar, where these two must have come from, and to see people on horseback enjoying the Parque Natural is now a common sight. Sometimes in the mornings we have seen groups on horseback riding up the ramblas of Las Negras.
After the winter rains and because of the extra humidity the countryside is still lush and green. The photo above illustrates this well showing the Bermuda buttercups and green grasses below the palm trees of El Valle.
