Sunday afternoon it was, so I decided to follow the Douro upstream until it'd become El Duero and then head home to Salamanca. Taking a couple of excursions left and right, just to be sure to see as much as possible.

Next time I'll try with serious knobblies, betcha!

The way home was really nice while I was in Portugal ...
