The El Palmar Guardian 2 – AKA โ€œThe Bird Blasterโ€ ๐ŸŽง๐Ÿ’ฃ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฆ†๐Ÿฆ…๐Ÿ”ซ๐Ÿ”‰

As we slowly head back weโ€™ve stopped in a lovely place called El Palmar in Valencia.

So this is where they grow Paella rice, thereโ€™s got to be more Paella restaurants here, than in the whole of Spain!..but donโ€™t quote me on that! Didnโ€™t get the best of nights sleep, as we were kept awake by the sounds of gun shots! all of which seemed to be coming from all directions and very close by! On todayโ€™s training run, we now understand what the supposedly โ€˜gun shotsโ€™ were, of course…!! ย itโ€™s the โ€˜Guardian 2โ€™ bird blaster! and many of them, they are basically a cannon that runs off butane gas thatโ€™s set on a timer and makes a loud gun shot/explosion noise, that can be set to blast every minute or half hour! so yes we โ€œpitched campโ€ next to a bird scarer, set to every minute! they are used to protect the farmers crops, in this case Spainโ€™s Paella, and it kicks out over 120 decibels over an area of 4 hectares!! I spent most of the night checking the local news channels on my phone, expecting to read about a civil war breaking out between the locals, anyway, looks like weโ€™ll be trying out the local Paella for breakfast! ย ๐ŸŽง๐Ÿ’ฃ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฆ†๐Ÿฆ…๐Ÿ”ซ๐Ÿ”‰๐Ÿฅ˜#notmuchsleep
