We finally arrive under blue skies at Murcia, do some shopping, walking & washing...
A trundle up to Ricote (bet that's a surprise then!) and soon we are soaking it up
Back in the land of proper walks
A reminder of why we love this lifestyle so much..
OK be happy but here's a convincing insect sting to slow you down son!
Not cruel fate but actually a very pleasant stay together is what ensues after the In Laws arrive having changed their plans a little and enjoying Ricote so much
Breakfast etiquette Mansfield style!
Market day looms and that ever present roast chicken Van Man..
The hillside goat herd make an appearance down in the village
Nina's folks take to the walking big style and join us most days for treks we thought they would struggle with but accomplish admirably
One such walk takes the curious ladies in to the cemetery to nosy around at how its done over here
These are stores we think re enforced with concrete
Down the steep valley lies Ojos..
and a very nice 'little' cafe we often visit
Barely enough headroom in the cafe under the owner's flat
So typical this shot of a local on his bike in the lemon groves with his Mutt
Another day another gruelling hilltop walk but they loved it!
Back at base some rain is brewing
(not sure which one is Bill's Mothers)😀
