Cabo de Gata

On the 27th…..the Missus’ birthday….we drove along the Andalucian coast to Camping Cabo de Gata. This is a good site, on the Cabo de Gata peninsula, which extends East from Almeria. There is a little collection of Brits here, most of them here for six months or so to avoid UK weather, and a lot of dog owners as there is a lot of good dog walking around…..it is quite a remote site, with little traffic.

The site is about 500m from the beach, which you reach by cycling, or walking, along a track along side long saltwater ponds, full of flamingoes when we arrived.

Not sure if the whiter ones are younger, or maybe not eating as many prawns, than the pinker models.

This one did a dance for us.

There are a lot of Egrets here.

And some colourful ducks…we forgot to pack a bird book so please comment if you know what they are.

OK…not a duck I know.

This is one of the Cabo de Gata beaches, with the Cabo de Gata mountains in the background. We went to the campsite restaurant for the birthday tea….olivey salad thingy to start, then chichen in pepper sauce and frites….very nice. We didn’t risk cycling down the coast for a meal away….we don’t balance on bikes so well after a glass or three of vino blanco any more.
