Recent rain has filled up the lagoon nicely. Lots of walkers around and some fairly avid looking bird watchers. Fat fish were seen in the water. The surrounding area looks to have been flooded also, very wet underfoot in parts.























One of the many abandoned cisterns and wells. I would have though that, with a water shortage looming, these could easily be made useful once again.  This one was fairly full.

Ages since I have  been there, so earlier today I dusted off the bike and took myself over. There as plenty of water in the lagoon and it's obvious it was even higher not long ago.

The storms and heavy rain a couple of weeks ago caused the sand bar to be breached. The seaward side of the lagoon is almost empty. The system that controls the flow of water between the two halves is almsot closed, allowing water to build up on the otherside.

Some of the local inhabitants look decidely bemused.






















Nearby, a flock of goats and sheep was happily grazing, including some very black ones that would make a nice pair of woolly gloves or a hat maybe. Most of the goats were being sensible, sitting under the trees.

Interesting. Thanks.
