Windy days

My good intention today was to get up on the terrace roof and re-paint it but the winds over the past couple of days have been quite strong and there was a danger that a sudden gust might unexpectedly blow the paint pot off while I was desperately hanging on for dear life to the TV antenna pole. I don't do heights very well.
According to our neighbour, the wind is called the "Solano" and it apparently causes exhaustion and dizziness. That explains it then!!.

So instead, we wandered down to the market, though not surprisingly there were hardly any traders set up in the breezy conditions. Onwards then to "El Peñon de Cerretillo", the new park area that was officially opened last weekend that gives great views to the Sierra de Grazalema and the Serrania de Ronda.

Although windy, the temperature is still about 19°C. After the peñon, we strolled up to the park off the Plaza de Andalucia. Just a few pics looking around the park and across Olvera.
