Home now and back to a comfortable mattress and squishy pillow. Just a quick post with a few pictures. Nothing too heavy so you can yawn later!!!
Our first inspection by a Short Toed Eagle.
A packhorse bridge that, along with others down the gorge, just seemed to lead right into the cliff face (to the right). Makes you wonder how different the landscape was when it was built.
The first escarpment in the distance we would have to cross. The village on the hill was deserted and it had the most fantastic view over the Embalse (reservoir) de Yesa.
Spain seems to be on a continuous road build mission. The one below still needs a little work to be done. Actually they have some of the most fantasic roads, even in the remote places and the fact that you can see a car coming towards us was unusual for our trip. We left Siguenza on Wednesday and it was an hour and a half before we actually saw another car. It is still early season though.
One of the smallest daffs I've ever seen.
Once over the escarpment we drove around a bend in the road and saw this bluff. Beyond that you can just see the snow topped mountains we would be crossing to reach our hotel for that night. You can imagine the satnav picture looking like a child's scribbling most of the time. John spent a lot of time grinning.
Another inspection by a Griffon Vulture. It was amazing how many large birds could be supported over there, especially the opportunists like vultures. There is about zero road kill due to lack of cars and live stock is not very plentiful. Again it makes you think about the wildlife you can't ever see that is there as part of the food chain.
Some of the Neapolitan ice cream landscape. And this was quite subtle compared to what we had driven through the day before.
If only the sky had been a little more purple and this would have been a perfect tertiary colour selection by Mother. Then again She knows what She's doing and it still looks pretty good to me.
All menus were translated, some parts more successfully than others. John had to have the 'colds more entertaining' just to find out of course.
Yesterday was the Brockenhurst Needlework Fiesta. With the likes of Mulberry Silks, the Silk Route and Ario there I just had to have a splurge! Enjoyable it was too.
We're catching up with family today, I hope you have a good Sunday too.
