Blossom Stroll n’ Lunch – 5th & 6th February

We were fully subscribed with 64 Stroll and Luncher’s over the 2 days and were blessed with beautiful weather

The walk started from Carrascal and led out of the village along the “orchid trail” on the foothills of the Carrascal range.

With great views out to Parcent and the first of the Jonquils  (Tiny Daffodils) showing, our walkers soon got warmed up.

From the Carrascal Trail we followed the narrow roads through the almond groves, admiring the white and pink blossom as we walked towards Jalon.

With the sharp frosts of last week, the blossom had been delayed so it was not all fully out

But there was still plenty to admire, in its various colours and forms

So from Jalon it was back towards Parcent enjoying great views towards Caballo Verde

Stopping for the odd water break – it was very warm, about 19 degrees both days.

Then back to Carrascal for a well earned Lunch – Four courses with wine – a just reward for the 10.5km walked. We hope everyone enjoyed themselves and we’ll plan similar events  in the near future – watch out for our Newsletter – please subscribe by visiting our website if you are not currently on our mailing list.
