Biking & Baking in Las Alpujarras

We've been in Spain for over 4 years now - plus 4 motorbikes - and a horse - join us for the ride!

Summer at last!
Tuesday, June 4, 2013 @ 11:15 PM

Suddenly we seem to be into summertime mode: shorts, sandals, siestas and a lot of sunshine!  Luckily the temperatures up here in the mountains are not too high yet and there are cooling breezes drifting guys and gals down on the coast or inland near Sevilla must be beginning to feel it.  The best part of the day is about 8am...or 8pm...and the landscape is still lush and green, full of birdsong and flowers.

My horse is doing well although she doesn't like flies - or fly repellent - and is still adapting to country life.  The trip to Lobras (in winds, rain and chilly temperatures) resulted in a sprained wrist and thumb for me which I am still coping with, and a few frights along the way.  But the actual event was great - have a look on YouTube for Lobrasan Horse Races, 2012 and, soon, 2013, to get a flavour.  All good amateur fun.

We are told that there will be a motorbike event next Sunday 9 June in Mecina Fondales, but I haven't seen any posters or adverts...if I find oút more I'll post it here...then start polishing the C90!!!
