50 Rambling Walkers and guests got wet feet during their first walk of the season at Pego Marshes.
The rice fields of the Parc Natural La Marjal had been drained for harvesting but this meant some of the surrounding paths were flooded.
Spirits were not dampened however and the walk in the hazy sunshine was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Members learned of the ecology, fauna and flora of the area and visited Font Salada.
Leaders for the day were Julie and Mark who also arranged for the group to enjoy a social lunch at Restaurant L’Om in Pego Old Town after the walk.
The next walks are in Calpe next Thursday October 5.
The international, friendly group walks on alternate Thursdays from September through to May – the walks are followed by an optional social lunch in a local restaurant.
