Well I am still with Vélez as my topic, because to be honest it was just so enjoyable, I gotta spread the love!  So after we finished our 1.5 hour tour of the Nazarí Gardens, we enjoyed a coffee at the cafe there, we headed for the hills to enjoy a an absolutely stellar day, weather wise and view wise.

Our leader Frank decided we should follow the acequia (water canals) through the town and out the other side, it was a great idea.  Here are some of the photos that I took while walking.  This day trip from Salobreña is so easy, you must consider it!



Remember to always look up.

The acequia, seen at the bottom of the old wall, carries water throughout the town.

Rollin, Rollin, Rollin.

Innovative lamp shades along the acequia . Plain old metal buckets. Cute!

Just around a corner

Big old orange tree.

Big old olive tree, still producing, the Arabs thought of everything.

Almond blossoms, unmodified photo. Look at that colour!

This car actually came down that stone pathway.

Beautiful old terraced olive orchards.

We met later for a drink.
