A walk through a cork oak forest

Laura and I decided to go for a walk yesterday. She had recently been in this area and I said I would like to see the freshly harvested cork oak trees as I had never seen them. We met up in Orgiva, drove into the Contraviesa and parked at the restaurant of Haza del Lino. It was a beautiful autumn day, just perfect for walking, not too hot, not too cold, no wind and nobody else around.


Wonderful colours on the trunks of the trees after the recent harvest.

Out of my comfort zone and onto the NW ridge of Tozal del Cartujo

This is my version of a day scrambling I had in the Sierra Nevada on the NW ridge of Tozal del Cartujo. Thankfully I was in the competent company of Richard, Felipe and Andrew, who all helped to keep me calm, make me laugh and make me feel confident. Yes I can do it.

I got married!

Actually I’ve been married a month now. Richard and I ran off to Gibraltar and got married on 30th June. Paperwork had to be handed in to the registry office between 8.30am and 10am at least a day before the wedding, so we decided we would drive down on the 28th to get the paperwork sorted on 29th and the wedding was booked for the 30th.


Wedding


Neither of us had been to Gibraltar before and we had a great time with Steph and Steve. Thanks to them both for kindly allowing us to stay with them and agreeing to be … Read the rest
