3 March 2014 – Tarbena

Ten of us for this walk, which was led by Peter.   He leads two walks from Tarbena, but this is our favourite.  
It’s hard to know what to wear for our walks at this time of year.  Its often pretty cold at the start, but we soon warm up when there is a little climbing or scrambling.
Jan often carries her jacket more than she wears it

Our regular lunch spot is quite exposed, and can be either too hot or too cold.   We were lucky today that the sun made an appearance just as we sat down to eat.
Whatever the weather the view is pretty impressive
The next part of the walk is along a very good road, making it possible to admire the extensive views of the mountains and the coast around Benidorm.
We even had a particularly good view of Sierra Helada, our January walk from Albir to Benidorm.   This view shows just how many “ups and downs” there are.
Towards the end of the walk Peter suggested an “extension”, which everyone was too polite to object to.

And to be fair the view made the extra effort well worth while
As soon as we stop Sylvia always managed to find somewhere comfortable to sit and rest
The rest always seem to find something very important to natter about 
Then a short walk back to the car park in Tarbena.........
-----and a well deserved drink at the bar just outside the village
Monday 10 March 2014
Most of the group is on holiday next week, including Peter and Pat.  So we will be able to do one of our favourite walks which are not so popular with the whole group.   Next week will be Orba Castle from Parcent.   Meet at the car park opposite the Farmacia at 10am
