Scary walk on La Palma

Today we arrived at La Palma, one of the smallest of the Canary Islands. It is very similar to Madeira in that it is very hilly and green.

We found a walk that took us up through the town and then over to a great viewpoint. 

On the way an up angry dog nipped Darren's trouser leg, and as we carried on walking we heard more and more dogs barking, then charging up and down trying to attack us from behind metal fences. 
It made a very nice day into a bit of an ordeal at times, but we carried on anyway. 

As we started back down we had to walk along a very overgrown levada, fighting our way through tall green weeds, 

but it was all worth it in the end and we got down to the pretty town of Santa Cruise, which I think is known for it's lovely balconies. 

A large glass of wine on the seafront and then a nice siesta and I am nearly good as new. 
We are now settling in for five days at sea, and out of contact, until we arrive in Brazil.
