One morning we were working down in the finca when there was a huge
rumbling whooshing noise. A quick check around told the story. They
were starting to refill the cut slope above the Barranc. It seemed
a bit of a Augean task, but about 200 lorry loads later the had
the full width and depth of the gap filled. The next night the wild
boar took the first opportunity to use it as a short cut to their
finca is looking very green at the moment, which makes it rather
stand out amongst the other fincas, which are sterilized of any
form of plant other than the olive trees.
The bore hole got capped just before the end of the month. An expensive
lump of concrete all in all.
Is when you put on your best togs and march around the village behind
the guys with the statue. Very social, the band umpah's the beauty
queens parade and everyone has a good gossip
Theo has been enjoying the extra attention now it's just Bran &
him in there. He
had also made friends with a semi-wild hunting bitch, which started
to hang around, but wouldn't let us touch her. She has been called
Cleo, because of her Pharoh houndish looks and the posh way she
crosses her front paws when she lies down.
