On a simply splendid day from Velez Blanco to Vera we stopped for Lunch in Taberno: what did we have? A shared Russian Salad, coffee and a 1.5 litre bottle of water each! It was hot in them thar hills today!
This was our best day to date on this trip. A exhilarating hurtle down to Velez Rubio, then a breath-taking climb up to 1160 meters, followed by a hot and lumpy stretch in glorious scenery to Taberno for lunch, before a final dash to Vera, including a track along by the motorway. We arrived in the last dregs of the sun, tired, but thrilled.
