Scenic route. The day started with hail and thunderstorms. But when we left it was dry. Nice weather. This was the first time I used the special shoes to wade through a deep river. Leon crossed the river undaunted. Plien got a wet bottom! Tosca dashed into a flock of sheep , before I had seen it. The shepherd accepted my excuses kindly , fotunately. He didn’t have much choice though. In the afternoon we put on our capes , and again the capes off. During lunch we made our first coffee. See photo of Pauline and Rob under a tree. We saw many storks’ nests again, like everywhere indeed, in recent weeks. But now we were surprised by the numerous shields at the electricitym poles, which were specially meant for storks. At one pole was a sign with an explanation for the birds, that this was  intended only for storks. For any illiterate birds, storks or foreign birds, there also was an icon / drawing next to the sign. For dogs, I have never seen such a nice explanation. Nowhere even a sign with Cave Canem. Not necessary, because here it is obvious (?) that one takes care for dogs. My affectionate Tosca is being feared here like a bloodhound.                                                                    We passed the Roman ruins of Caparra, took some pictures of the triumphal arch, the ancient Roman road and the excavated foundations. The ruins reminded me of the fights of Asterix and Obelix with the Romans. Horse Leon was bored, so he started kneeling  down to roll over, ho, ho, damn, a little cick and the far surroundings could hear that the disaster was averted again.
