Day 15 – Dog Trainer and her Dogs in Valencia

Today we travelled to a small town called Soria, we only have 2 nights here and so want to pack in as much as possible. Our first walk was a beautiful walk in a valley where there was a sweet monastery. The monks when they resided at the monastery kept bees high up on a ridge, to ensure they were safe from predation. Although no longer there, the logs upon which the hives were placed, remain for visitors to see.

The walk took us in a canyon between the high ridge above the canyon and a river. The walk was prematurely ended when we reached the normal crossing point. Usually the river is crossable on stepping stones that sit just above the water level. Due to the huge amounts of rain the stones were 4-6 inches beneath the water. This would be at least knee height for us to get to the stones, and they were extremely slippery so sense prevailed over valour and we turned around.

The walk was a wonderful one and the sun shone, so despite the low temperatures of 5ish degrees, it was extremely pleasant. Also managed to get some wonderful pictures of the dogs posing at various points on the route.

The cottage is absolutely fantastic, with a log burning stove and plenty of logs to burn. An open plan living room, dining room and Kitchen with a dining table capable of seating 10 comfortably. There are 3 bedrooms upstairs, all ensuite and extremely pretty. The kitchen contained a lovely old stove, which was not useable but a beautiful piece of history to decorate the kitchen.

A truly wonderful place to be.
