The two sailors express curiosity at the head that Andrej fixes, and listen to as much story as the party wishes to tell. Jacobo warmly slaps Maximillian on the back at one point, as you're walking back to the boat, saying, "You're looking somewhat the worse for wear there, my friend."
Enrico has noticed a hawk lazily circling in the sky, which seems odd for February, and remarks upon it to the others. As you travel two or three miles, to where you can see the sea, the hawk disappears, then reappears from time to time.
The pine trees give way to wild olive groves again, on an easy slope where there are many loose blocks of stone, leading down to low cliffs above the sea, thirty or forty feet high. Anders calls a halt when you come to a place where the shore of the sea is accessible, via a gulley that splits the cliff in half and shows a narrow, rocky beach running a hundred feet. "We wait here," he says.
