It seems the best of the weather lies in and around Murcia so we set off in foul weather to get there
Turbulent skies and very windy conditions play havoc with street furniture
We saw numerous lorries and vans stuck in mud in the fields and side roads
Cortes y Graena and atop the dam for a couple of nights. How we didn't get blown off it the first night I don't know!
Somewhat different to the 35 deg heat of last spring
The roads here are spattered with the rocks brought down in the overnight rains and we do our best to clear the larger ones from the tarmac on a big walk the next day
The walls left after excavation look really dodgy to me having seen the landslide at Pomarao last year
Undercut nicely by erosion and made of thick rubble/clay
Not a place to hang around in....
Dry stone walling Spanish style
We escaped this lot thankfully
La Peza, the nearest village, proved to be a big hit at lunchtime where we found a very nice bar doing 'Walkers Food'
