Walk on the 22nd February to Torrox Campo
Twelve hardy souls and five dogs braved the dark clouds and trooped up the new road to the hills above the motorway in Torrox on Friday.
It was a longish, gradual climb to the beginning of the walk proper but worth it. The views were good down to the sea and the scenery pleasant and green after the recent rains. It was a circular walk with a steep climb downhill all the way back, definitely the right way to do this walk. The weather held till we got down to the main road again when the heavens opened and we did get a bit damp. Six of us had a nice lunch on Torrox Costa and the others headed home to dry off. In total the walk took about 2 hours and we covered approx. 10 kms.We didn’t find any wild asparagus as mentioned in the pre walk blurb as it would have meant scrambling around amongst the rocks and shrubs on the hillsides but it does grow there and is very tasty so I’m informed! Better luck next time.
The next walk will be on the 22nd March. See the U3A website for further details.
