5 Mar 2012 – Tormos to Font Centella

We had a good turnout today for David and Rosemary’s last walk for a few weeks.  They are returning to UK for a short visit.   It was nice to see Sue, who has not walked with us for a few months.
Its two years since we last did this walk.   We followed the road to Isbert Dam for a short time, and then set out across country.   After a sharp climb on a difficult overgrown track we were rewarded with these views of the Green Horse.

Pat had intended to do some path clearing, but it proved too overgrown to do it properly.  Though Peter did cut back the worse of the undergrowth

After a couple of hours we reached Font Centella, where we also joined a signed path which would lead us down to Isbert Dam
We eventually rejoined the road from Tormos, and were able to appreciate the scenery as we made our way to the dam
 Just a short scramble over the rocks to our lunch picnic site
The dam is a very impressive site, and an excellent spot for lunch
Sue started an extended discussion on the UK welfare system when she told us that her state pension would be delayed due to a change in the entitlement period.
On the way back to Tormos we found this unusual building.  It is very similar to the “music house” above Fontilles.   This one was just a shell, and no other buildings nearby.   Hard to imagine what its purpose might have been.  Ken suggested that it might have been home to a hermit.

Sue has offered to lead a walk from Lleus to Olta.   Meet in the square at 10am.    There are no bars in Lleus, so Peter has suggested that we each bring a drink and a snack in addition to the normal picnic lunch.   Weather permitting we will have our post walk  drink in Lleus square.
