Am taking you along with us again, hope you don't mind.
A small morning hike.
This time- Northward.
Following the remains of a road, past an old man and his horse training for what looks like the charriot races, some friendly dogs and a church tucked up among the cliffs ( a place near Mtahleb)
the wild winds howling away.
The raging rain storm having left the land looking a bit shaken.
A cheery yellow dog leading us along (notice that little cluster of houses below).
Down the hill past blooming almond trees.
Tall wispy fennel plants and groves of lemon trees heavy with fruit.
Down through what seemed to be a ghost village, of 7 or 8 buildings, only one looked like there may be someone living in it.... the others had been abandoned and left to the elements...
Then past a tiny cared for vineyard
to a place where a smal stream trickled by and tadpoles were spotted
through something like a bamboo jungle
past banana trees!
and pretty little flowers
(wish I knew their name)
**That yellow dog spent the whole morning with us and then jumped in the car between the kids, as if he belonged there. Felt cruel to drive off and leave him behind watching us,
such a happy cheerful fellow.
Windblown and rosy cheeked, date scones and a pot of hot tea.
