4 April 2016 – El Somo/Bolulla Castle

The weather forecast was for heavy rain by midday, but we got away with cloudy but dry

Last week Pat described this walk led by Jacky and Mike as a new walk called El Somo.  In fact it turned out to be the walk we know as Bolulla Castle.   We have walked it many times but always enjoy it.

The sky looks really grey in this photo, but it did not really seem so when we were walking.   As always it is better to be out and about as long as it is not raining.

As we started the walk a large cement mixer passed us on the track past where we had parked the cars.  I half expected to find a scratch when we returned, but in fact there was no damage at all. 
Thanks to Mike for this lovely photo, and for confirming that it is called a Spanish Festoon Butterfly

We arrived at Bolulla Castle at 12.30, which was too early for lunch.  So we had to carry on for another ten minutes before we could rest and eat

Monday 11 April
Next week will be Bernia circuit via the forat at the special request of David and Rosemary.  It is some time since we did this walk and I hope we have good weather to do it justice.   Meet at the usual start at 10am
