Continuing paths on a shape with the Pen?

After drawing a shape with the Pen tool I would like to modify the shape by continuing to add paths to some of the existing anchor points, however, when I place the cursor next to an anchor point it turns into the minus sign and when I click it deletes that anchor point. How do I add to existing anchors on a shape?

 

Thanks

Maybe Preferences > Disable Auto Add/Delete and zooming in helps.

Adding to Ton's insight, you can also use the pencil tool to do small refinements, just start drawing right over the top of your existing line to make modifications. I find it works better in small sections rather than trying to revise a whole path in one go...
