We set off south along the trail, deciding to walk for 45 minutes before turning and walking the 45 minutes back to the car. The trail passes Lake Salanbrol, above.
Arriving back at the car and the skies have darkened, are we going to have a deluge?
And at last, we spot mechanised Olive harvesting. We watched while two tracked vehicles set to and harvested olives. The harvester has something like a giant inverted-broken-umbrella fixed to the front in hydraulic arms. Approaching the olive tree, the arms are lowered and the umbrella unfurled around the base of the tree and then the harvester shakes the tree. The olives fall off into the waiting umbrella which furls up again and gathers the crop..simples.
And spotted on our walk, how about miniature Iris's as wild flowers?
After a couple of hours out and about we headed south again under louring skies but no rain. We decided that we will take a pack-up (packed lunch) next time, perhaps later in the week and head north along the Vias Verde now we have located it..
