Nature Trail

The weather forecast was rain today so we cancelled the group walk. We decided to go for a swim (indoor pool of course too cold for outdoors still). Afterwards we had coffee and toast, still no rain so we decided to go for a little walk into the Arroyo valley.

There are some really lovely flowers at the moment so it turned out to be a 2 hour nature trail.

During the walk two things happened which were unusual. First we met with a Spanish senderismo group from Malaga who were doing the same route that we were doing but in the opposite direction, the second was that we spotted a birds nest with three eggs in only about a metre from the path that we were on. We managed to do the whole walk without a spot of rain, don't know what is wrong with the people at the met office this year? Only know two of the flowers anyone know what the others are?
