Just had Emma and Claire out for a week. I call them “kids” but they are 40 and 38 years of age! Great to see them after the 2 years of disruption caused by the Covid pandemic.

We did plenty of walks and enjoyed some great views and spectacular scenery. Also had some nice meals out. Enjoyed having them around.

A new walk is being constructed near Lanjaron, out of an old trading route from the coast that brought fish into the Alpujarra.

This circular walk half day walk we did gives interesting views and, rather surprisingly, a swing chair half way round. Different!

Been playing with the camera again today as we returned to the Rio Saleres to do this spectacular river walk with Emma and Claire. The route only takes 2.5 hours but is a special journey into scenery few get to enjoy.

The plan had been to climb Pico Lucero from the north but Mrs Google Maps sending us into a remote dead end! So, no Pico Lucero today.

Instead we made the best of it and discovered a superb circuit of the Puerto de Frigiliana and the Mirador de Agua. Great views and superb weather despite a cold start.

Walk along the acequias above Lanjaron this morning with my girls (Kiersten, Emma, Claire and Rita) + Arko. A cold start, felt like autumn had arrived but this walk will become more colourful as autumn advances.

We started and finished above the Bar Frenazo at the western end of Lanjaron and did a circular clockwise route.
