While I was wandering through Parque del Retiro in Madrid, having a most enjoyable day, as usual my gaze was drawn upwards. What was not usual were the couple of cats I spied (cat)napping (HA!) in the sunshine, nestled Way Up High in some broad branches!!
And then I began to notice that several trees were cat napperies!! Within the few hours I strolled along the grounds I encountered countless more felines!
And then there was the pig…While on the Camino to Santiago de Compostela, we did once (barely) see a fleetfooted fox, and, besides the sheep, goats, donkeys and horses in pastures, we also “shared the road” a few times with horses.
And a billygoat…Mostly we saw (and smelled) cows – cows, cows and more cows!! Many were pastured.
However we did run across herds traveling on the road. We might be on break enjoying our cafe con leche, hear a cow bell and then see one to five cows traipsing a narrow road
Or, we might end up right in the middle of a field trip!!
Come to find out, my subscription does not support a video, and darn, I had a great little video of us being in the middle of the cow herding! Anyway, we intermingled, had a wonderful time and we enjoyed smelling and seeing the cows, too!!
