At last an Ibex!

Just back from another fab week walking in Spain. Staying at Casa Granadina in Huerta de Ranea. Great weather, great walking, great company and great home cooked food courtesy of Rosie – definitely the hostess with the mostest. My favourite walk of the week had to be at El Torcal. Went there a few years back in the pouring rain and mis. This time though it was wall to wall […]


A challenge… 2

Well done to the brave (or should that be bonkers) ones that cycled – I was not one of them. Lunch break in the park was an idea that lots of others seems to have too and it […]
