Mt Sagra Annual Pre-June BBQ May 2014

Having open fires is not something you’d do in Spain in the summer – and in fact some forms of BBQ are banned from June 1st to save burning the whole place down!

And so it was we set off around the back of Sagra near Pueblo De Don Fadrique for a BBQ – it’s around 26c in the shade and has been most of the day and deep in the woods is a cracking area for BBQs complete with stone tables and chairs – as it happens our small group were the only ones around so we had the whole place to ourselves, including a very picturesque nearby church. I’m writing this around teatime having spent the whole afternoon down there, around 12 of us.

As pictures in these situations are more important than words, I’ll let the pictures do the job. Click on any smaller ones to enlarge.

The afternoon ended with a visit by a herd of goats – which was fun!
