A POEM A DAY - GIANT ALMOND






Yesterday we visited Gata de Gorgos, a small town near the coast. It is famous for its cane baskets and ceramics which are displayed in shops lining the main road through the town. We spent some time looking for the archaeological museum which was in the Town Hall building, opened by the interesting tourist office employee who showed us the exhibition. I was fascinated to see the number of finds from around the Marina Alta and am motivated to find out more about what remains of the area's past. We also explored the walk along the Gorge, too hot at midday to go far, a walk to enjoy in cooler weather.  High up on the grey slabs of rocks we spotted some large stone sculptures, almonds, a giant walnut and leaves of cactus. They looked like part of the rock landscape, as if a giant hand had broken open nuts and scattered them down the hillside.
