Another beautiful day here in La Alpujarra.

The temperature has cranked up a notch these past couple of days, I fear summer will be early this year ☚ī¸ The dogs are thankful for the water that flows in the acequias.

Managed to nip out with the dogs during a break in the very welcome rain. The cats said to wake them when it stops 😹

Change of route on our walk today to beat the rain. Didn't believe it was going to, but it did and we got wet, 10 minutes from home 😂 Plenty of flowers to see, shame we were in such a rush. Sun back out now ☀ī¸

Walked up the hill today to find these two sat waiting for us in the shade.

I think Rita has a big smirk on her face at the face Arko was making

Sooty auditioned to be a GIF! We've had some crazy winds, again, in Lanjaron, we recorded 70kph in the early hours of today.

Proof of the wind can be seen in the short video clip from the dog walk

But the funny story is from this afternoon. I was searching for my secateurs that had blown away, Sooty ran up a tree, she likes to do this. I looked at her and told her it was not a good idea in this wind, so she ran higher up the tree! An enormous prolonged gust came, I checked on her again to see she was hanging on like a cartoon character by her front two feet and her body and back feet were blowing in the wind. I was helpless with laughter and trying to get my mobile out my pocket to video it 😂 Needless to say I failed at videoing her as it was all over so quickly. She did hold on but as soon as the wind eased enough she ran down the tree to the ground. Sooty is recovering from the windy fun by sleeping on Sweep. Me, I'm still shedding tears from the wannabe GIF known as Sooty.
