We followed the track out for around 4KMs and the we met up with a large flock of Goats and Sheep who were being guarded by three large dogs, two of which were very nice and enjoyed a scratch but the third one was less happy with us being there.

We turned around at this point and walked back to the Village where I picked up some of the lovely local Jamon Curado Ahumado from the very nice lady in the bread shop just above the main square.
