Weather today was sunny most of the time but with more cloud later in the day. Temperatures were up to 20C.
Last Tuesday when the rest of the group visited the Alhambra Palace in Granada Ernie, Phil and I rode up the Pico Veleta mountain road and Nicola went horseriding. Today Ernie Nicola and I went to Granada with the aim of visiting the Alhambra.
The others had to queue for 2 hours so we had an earlier start and Ann dropped us off there at 7.30. Unfortunately the next day was the Mayday holiday and it appeared a lot of people had taken the Monday off as well.
After queuing for 2 1/2 hours and making very slow progress I roughly counted the people ahead of us at 600 and probably at least another 1 1/2 hours of waiting so we gave up.
We walked down into Granada and after coffee in the square had a look round the impressive Cathedral. We had rung Ann and arranged an earlier pickup and returned to base.
