We struck up a conversation and learned they were on a 6-week tour of Europe in their camper (apparently, the dog has his own room in ...
... is a walk around a headland to the older town. It was market day there, but not a lot of interesting stock. We did our usual meander through the streets and then took some time to climb up an old track to an old fort. We think we got a bit confused, as we ended up in the town cemetery.
