The sound of summer on the Thyme Track

We woke early this morning and took the opportunity to go for a walk before the heat made the prospect too daunting. We walked along the Thyme Track, the quietest part of the valley, past Horse Corner, now a mass of golden grasses, past Hermano’s olive grove [belonging to Pablo’s brother], to the end of the valley where the path fades out into nothing and we can go no further.
We stopped, to listen to the silence, revelling in the lack of noise pollution. No planes overhead, no strimmers, no mopeds… and unusually, no tractors.
