We’ve had a lot of cloud and rain during the past week. Fortunately, Mr. Sunshine is never too far away, so this morning when he popped through the clouds, I hot-footed it down to Torre del Mar for a walk along the promenade.
There is a lovely paved promenade at Torre del Mar, with beautiful gardens running alongside, and I’d only been walking for a few minutes when I came across this stunning flower on a banana plant.
Isn’t it magnificent?
A little further on, as I approached the Sailing Club, I moved from the paved promenade onto the hard, compacted sandy path on the beach, for a better view of the many boats stored at the club.
(You can see the clouds still threatening, over the mountains in the distance and indeed, as I write this, the rain has returned).
Known as the Sendero Litoral, this sandy path runs from the Rio Vélez delta to the port at Caleta de Vélez – a distance of 3.4 kilometres, and is popular with walkers and joggers.
Do YOU have a favourite place where you love to walk when you get the chance?
