Mazagon to Ayamonte

This morning before we left Mazagon we spent some time at an overlook beside the Parador. A couple of years ago a wild fire encircled the Parador.

We didn’t have far to drive today so we took back roads. We saw lots of orange groves,

and storks.

This afternoon after we checked in at Parador Ayamonte we sat outside our room and played hearts. For those of you who have played cards with Duke in the past you’ll be interested to know that he lost at hearts both yesterday and today!

This Parador is built on the site of an old fort overlooking the Portugal Spain border. The original fort located here was built by the Muslims.

For dinner we went into the town of Ayamonte and had wonderful paella at Bistro Vintage.
