Day 70: Boar and bikes

It was a beautiful day today – sunny and warm – so after a late breakfast (and after I had taken loads of pictures of the fog in the valley), we went for a longer walk along the hiking trail behind the village. We saw a few lizards, a deer and lots of evidence that wild boar had been through recently – the ground had been torn up and there were tracks all over the place. 

The trails aren't just used by boar and hikers – at one point I heard a noise ahead that sounded like a huge herd of deer stampeding and ran ahead to see if I could see them... only to be confronted by a mountain-biker in full regalia hurtling down the track towards me – an experience that was repeated a couple of times during the walk.
