POST WALK COMMENT from Phil: On a bright sunny morning 43 walkers and 2 dogs met at the 7Km post on the CV-873, Frailes to Albatera road and set off on a walk on well-made unsurfaced roads through citrus fields, the Parque itself, on minor tracks, and back through fields of figs and citrus trees, again of unsurfaced roads. This was an easy category walk of about 8Km with only about 200m of height gain and with no serious ascents. Unfortunately, I was so busy managing such a large group that I forgot to take any photographs, so if any of you have some from that walk please pass them to our Blog Master ( blogger @ digitalidiom.co.uk).
