Winter has arrived here in Parcent!
Margret had asked David to show her this walk from Benimaurell, and he invited us along. It had turned very cold since our last walk on Monday, but we had not realised just how cold until we started the walk. Clearly Margret had realised, she came dressed for alpine walking.
The recent rain had caused a lot of damage to the Orba to Benimaurell road, and we passed workmen on the way. But we had not expected damage to the mosarabic trail, which usually survive the worst of weather
Although it was very cold, it was also bright and even sunny. Whilst we were walking it was quite comfortable as long as we kept well wrapped up. But we soon got chilled when we stopped for lunch.
So we finished the walk more quickly than usual. It’s about 12 kilometer, and includes quite a bit of easy climbing, but we finished the walk in less than five hours. Then Margret treated us all to a very welcome coffee con leche in the bar.
