After a slight false start, we found the path that winds upwards through the hillside groves of almond trees from Tamaimo to Arguayo. We interrupted lots of sunbathing lizards and watched kestrels soar up above. After a slight detour due to road construction we arrived in Arguayo. Siesta time so not much to do beyond a quick rest and onwards towards Santiago del Teide. The path here follows a ridge for much of the way before descending again and the views were stunning. Descending again we were faced with more half constructed roads and so instead of pushing on towards Santiago del Teide we sidestepped towards El Molledo where we picked up the TF 65 Camino Real back to Tamaimo.
