Virtual location: Still working my way around the Midgewater Marshes!

I was not going to update until I managed to get clear of the marshes but I realised today that I was going to go a month without updates if I didn’t get a move on. Today I took a long and interesting walk from Fuengirola to La Cala and I decided I would post, whatever my mileage. According to my guide, Bilbo and co camped south of the road, away from the Marshes at mile 160 and then marched another 10 miles before they cleared the southeast tip and the road began to climb uphill. I’m glad. I’m sick of the marshes and I haven’t even been there.

Today’s image is a midge, drawn by Gina Mikel. You can see more of her artwork on her online gallery.
