Can you just about see him?
He saw us.
He stopped what he was doing
and took a good long look at us
before continuing to sniff around
and moving off into the vineyards.
The leaves on the vines are changing colour quite rapidly now.
They look a beautiful golden colour
in the sunshine,
especially when viewed
from higher up the valley.
I've taken the camera out
several times now,
only to take a photo
and it not work.
The batteries are not holding a charge.
So I've missed a number of nice shots.
Thank you for all your good wishes regarding my grandson.
He had his tonsils removed,
and after an overnight stay in hospital,
is back home.
I've spoken to him a couple of times on the phone,
and he's doing very well.
He sounds a bit croaky
and his throat is painful of course.
But hopefully it will be better soon.
