L is for lizard.
We saw some on the walk that I showed you on last weeks A-Z Monday.
These are some more photos from that walk on 12th October.
As you can see the day started out sunny and warm.
This is Mike and Danny with Rufus and Paddy not long after starting out, walking up through the vineyards.
We stopped plenty, the views were too nice not to.
The Hounds don't seem to be impressed with the view.
I love the rows of vines.
yet every now and then,
a block of vines will be set at a different angle to the neighbouring plot.
When we got as far as we wanted, we stopped and ate lunch.
The path after that got too steep and narrow to take the Hounds along.
Or maybe we were just too hot!
I took a walk along the path a short way as I was curious to what views it held.
But all I managed to do was to nearly step on this lizard!
They do move fast, especially to get out of the way.
The Hounds waited patiently as I took some photos of them, before we all set off back down the path.
This time there were far more lizards about. I think the sun had warmed the rocks.
Rufus spotted a lizard and after that he didn't stop looking out for them.
All the way back down the track he had his eyes to the side watching for their movement.
At times he was walking sideways!
After the walk Mike dropped Danny and I off at a town down river so that we could catch the boat back.
