Initially, it was reasonably pleasant for walking but by about 10'ish it really began to heat up.
We welcomed the cool draught created by heavy lorries as they passed by.
Our first view of Lebrija in the far, far distance, roughly the halfway point of the walk.
Anne, Dan and Alison passing by on their way to no doubt nice, ice cold drinks at a lovely cool air-conditioned venta somewhere.
We walked most of the way on the main A-471 road, diverting onto the A-8151 but on occasion to avoid traffic we also tried the "caminos", tracks that followed the route of the road.
At this stage, the pain was beginning to be felt by way of blisters and sore shins and this scarecrow certainly gives a good impression of the way I'm feeling and perhaps even the style of walking.
Going the wrong way!!.
Can this be true or just a mirage......El Cuervo on the horizon.
Believe me, the smiles hide a lot of pain.
At last, after five hours walking, we arrive at El Cuervo to be welcomed by Anne, Alison and Calcetines and a couple of ice cold beers.
