Tuesday morning and I decided, for a change, to brave the raging torrent and wade upstream in the river itself, carefully avoiding any areas which looked like they might contain tricky undercurrents.
The first bridge you come across is a low, narrow road bridge, and this is negotiated by bending the knees (considerably), doubling-up and waddling along like a duck. Maybe doesn’t look very ‘kool’, but it works.
Plenty of flowers still in bloom, although coming to the end of their time.
No stooping required for the second bridge, purely a footbridge.
Puente Viejo (Old Bridge) is next up, the cobbled bridge and main entry point into Nerja. This three span bridge with a brick facing was originally built in 1860. It has twice been destroyed by floods and then rebuilt, the last time being in 1979.
The next bridge is the N-340 roadbridge.
By now, struggling against the current all the time, it was time for a cold beer and a tapa at El Puente!!
