A test drive in the Espace into the mountains around Chirivel, proving the vehicle ready for McCobb tribe jaunts in the coming eight weeks, perfect way for a Fathers Day Sunday to pass. Velez Rubio deserved a longer visit than my swing through on the way to Chirivel. A quick look inside the church showed it to be just as impressive indoorsThe walk around Rubio done, i drove into the mountains to Velez Blanco, maybe one of the prettiest towns I’ve ever seen Great views across its sister town Velez Rubio and the mountains on the far side of the AutoviaThose far off mounds were on the route back. Across them to head for Albox, and doing a right turn behind them to the monastery.
I motored the Espace through the mountain roads and watched all gauges, it ran like a dream – the McCobbs should enjoy the vehicle and scenery.
I repaired the remote controller laying on the back seat, it’s the audio controller for the radio and the 6 CD player in the rear wheel arch. Music and mountains, good stuff. The restaurant really surprised me, a massive hall and silver service in what was a magnificent buildingI took the time to stroll the cloisters after lunch,see the church altarand a last look from the terrace before heading to Los Molinos
