We had great luck and the wind veered, driving the massive fires in a more southerly direction. At 5.00 am the Sierra Cabrera mountains were still blazing, and the fire moved on South passing our village.

I will go out and take some pictures of the devastation. There are 6 helicopters working at the moment. !   

We are a full house, 16 people and 8 dogs. ! It is a good thing we did not have to evacuate the village, though about half the village did leave. !

We are a good team, some worry, of course, but zero panic.

Pics later. Love, David.

It is now 3.30 in the morning and I have just taken these pictures. The Guardia are saying they may well order evacuation in 2 or 3 hours. Personally I think we will be OK as the wind is dropping and I think veering to the North.

Taken from the Mirador. It is kind of apocalyptic.

Looking up to towards Hueli.

This is wildfire completely out of control with a 40 to 40 kph wind from the West.

 This is a little bit worrying. It is now 12.45 at night and I have just taken these photos.. ! We can smell the smoke in the village and the quarry are getting their diesel out. Hmmmm. I hope we don't loose our communications gear. We are in a dodgy situation. I have never seen such a big fire. It looks like something out of The Lord of The Rings. Mordor. !!!
