Lovely day in Tindaya, light breeze, plenty of sun, occasional cloud during day but full cloud cover before sunset. Interesting dog walk this morning as the rescue helicopter arrived and performed training exercises in the barranco below us, much to the disgust of the goats in the nearest finca!  ;D
