We were a little tired this morning (Sunday) following an extremely late night at the Cómpeta feria (actually very tired and a little jaded after getting to bed at 4:00 am and our animal alarm going off at 7:00 am). Consequently poor Roly didn’t get his early morning walk. But no fear, a treat was in store – for all of us – when we decided to take a late morning trip to ‘la Fàbrica de la Luz’, a beautiful recreation area alongside the river Turvilla, about 3 km from the village of Canillas de Albaida and the same distance from our house.
Although it is a well used facility, with lots of shade and picnic areas, it is often possible to be in this beautiful area entirely alone. This morning there were a couple of cars parked up, but no-one in sight and we spent an extremely pleasant time throwing sticks into the river for the dog and generally enjoying our surroundings amongst the oleander trees.
But, please don’t tell anyone about our oasis of delight – we don’t want too many people visiting and spoiling the peace.
