30th October FONTE DOS CLERIGOS
It rained quite a lot throughout the night which really tested our newly concreted ditch; we were relieved to find that the only leaks now should be fixed by the addition of guttering around the roof and rendering the outside of the building.
We planted the fruit trees we bought last week, all the rain we’re getting should help them.
We went for a walk to the river; Brett, of course, had to cross it via the (4½’ high) stepping stones – I didn’t even think about it!
We came across a snake which we haven’t managed to identify (about 1 metre long).
Mark says it's a 'smooth' something, but we can't remember the rest!
