Our previous outings to the seaside had been to the Atlantic coast so today we decided to visit the Mediterranean. On paper, the trip looked straightforward, so we left home about 8.45am heading south through Ronda.
The road from Ronda however was windy and undulating and in places like a patchwork quilt of road repairs. The scenery though, particularly through the Genal valley and villages such as Gaucin and Algotocin, was beautiful. At one stage, prior to choosing Olvera to live, we were interested in a property in Algotocin but for several reasons we never actually got there to view.
Arriving at San Luis de Sabinillas approximately two and a half hours after leaving, the journey was longer than we anticipated and we were slightly the worse for wear so a coffee was in order. The area was obviously popular with the Brits as there were quite a few around and the cafes and shops advertised in english, something we are definately not used to in Olvera. Having said that, it was nice to see the fishing boats on the beach and presumably the local fishermen gathered around one of the boats.
Anyway, as always, just a few pics of the trip showing the beach area of the town and a shot of Algotocin on the right.
On the journey home we stopped off at a small village called Gaucin for a late lunch which at €10 each for a three course meal plus two beers we thought was good value.
