The day got off to a very slow start, in the end I just didn’t fancy cycling on my own again and the skies were very grey with heavy cloud over the hills so we decided to just have an easy morning and then decide later what to do, this turned out for the best.
Ended up lazing about reading for an hour or so before, as usual, falling asleep for a spell which I always enjoy! Once we had woken up properly it was time for a spot of lunch which was the usual ham baguette with olives and mixed pickles which is really all you need out here at lunchtime.
We have, as is always the case, spent a lot of time agonising over the future and how to make the best of it during this holiday. I think we have pretty much decided now that what we will do in 2015, health permitting, is to come out here for 4 weeks in May and that we will try to somehow get the tandem out here beforehand as this would definitely give another dimension to the holiday and would make food shopping easier. I think we will come on a self catering basis and try to take advantage of the discount being offered by Gabriel Esteppa.
Anyway, after lunch we decided to walk over to the little cove at the far end of the Boquer Valley, I believe this is called the Cala Boquer. Lorena has walked over there many times but I’d never been down to the cove but it was well worth it, it was really lovely. Having make the effort to bring the SD700 camera out here it would be such a shame not to take advantage of it and with that and the tripod I think I shot some quite nice clips
Lorena was asked by some folks to take some pictures of them and it seemed to go well, she has finally got the hang of getting the camera to focus rather than just pressing the button! :-)
Finally left the cove after about an hour of messing about and walked back to the hotel, the walk took us about an hour at a decent pace but certainly longer on the way out when I was taking pictures and video clips. Below is a clip of the Cala Boquer, what a lovely spot it is.
