Caniles and Baza!

Recommended Posts

I was out early as it's going up to 32C today......so when I went it was mid 20's and low humidity.

Went to the old Caniles Railway Station first......found some abandoned shit en-route.....

Got to the station......nice and empty with no bicycle twats! Hate the bicycle twats!

gs291c-min.jpg.d12ae0a390c03e4b01e851382876607f.jpg

This goes towards El Hijate.....

.....and this one towards Baza!

I checked out the abandoned plastics factory next.......

......and still no way in! I could have got over these walls in my younger days.......but those days are long gone! And they ain't coming back!

gs292a-min.jpg.36ca03cfe5b431440a372d3ceb2e0fe1.jpg

Then onto Baza station and it was full of bicycle twats having some sort of race! :wank4az:

So I had to make do with the turntable! Having said that, turntables are very rare in these old stations........and this is the only one I've visited that has actually preserved it. Seron just has the outline of where it was!

gs293.jpg.5a0ded022d457ed5db5a76ec0195a93c.jpg

You lot won't understand this......but it basically says "This is a fucking turntable, and It was put into action in 1907 and closed in 1985".

gs293b-min.jpg.a768b57c00322273638ea1d302ebb6db.jpg

And here's something of interest.....the turntable was actually built in Carlisle by Cowans, Sheldon & Co.

gs293c-min.jpg.acc3c6a2281414c3cf832f4a573cfe1b.jpg

Then it was back to the house before it got too warm......about 90 miles in all.

Which is probably about 90 miles further than you fucking Casuals will manage!

gs294-min.jpg.437168e5f7a4b00703d3efa726efe912.jpg

Had this bike a year now.......and still no thoughts of changing it! That's very strange for me!

Have I finally got the right bike.......or is it that the alternatives are just too expensive, or too heavy, or too gay, or too weird?

Nice one Pete, good to see you got out before death and dago's came upon you.  I can confirm that you WILL have done exactly 90 miles more than me today :classic_laugh:

32 now but mid twenties earlier Alan......that's perfect for me!

If 20 is your limit you'd only get out about 4 months a year here!

My mate wants me to go to bloody Africa with him. If my back shoulder and legs survived I'm sure that my tackle would have cooked like that guy in The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover. 😬

Well done Pete. I too went out today between 0900 and 1400 but unlike you I baked my nuts off on the CBR600F but thoroughly enjoyed racing around like a hooligan with five other twats.

No crashes, no near misses and fingers crossed, no speeding tickets. Happy days!

………….oh, and no fucking photos either 🤣

I can’t believe how fast we’ve acclimatised. Sweating buckets Friday to turning the aircon off today even though it says its 28c with a ‘feels like 35’ wtf? I would die at home in that heat. 
 

Loving the fact everything here is closed on sundays.. and maybe Monday or tuesday or any other day if that’s what’s suits 😂

Its a whole different culture grown up around sunshine and heat, that’s very different to home.

Humidity is probably lower today.....though it is a different sort of heat here.

You've probably noticed that the air quality is so much better as well.

I noticed the humidity very quickly. Everything dries in a fraction of UK time, had a shower and cup of tea, reached for the hairdryer, no need, hair is completely dry 😂 The air quality is probably better but in Blighty I live by the sea so it tends to be better than a lot of places. 
 

Currently grappling with the stupid address set up. It’s back to front to the way I understand addresses and apparently also the way Google maps understands addresses so I’ve ditched some of it and just typed the minimal bits that Google maps understands to bring someone to this location. @XTreme do you reckon that’s ok?
Will the Amazon parcel turn up?! 😬
 

Stay tuned for exciting updates.

Oh yeh......you won't need a hairdryer from May to November.

Don't worry about the address......the delivery drivers will know the location.

And the reason Google writes them the same way as you is because you're on the EN version......if you switch to ES then you'll get the Spanish version.

They'll normally be in this format: Calle Morote 150, Guadix 18800, Granada, España.
