Sunday 2 May 2010: The Swimming Lizards
I love arriving somewhere in the dark and waking up the next morning to discover where you are.
Their website really didn't do this place justice - it's absolutely fantastic. Totally out of the way, up a long bumpy, dusty track, huge swimming pool and a lovely garden.
When Bella and I took our first wander down to the pool, I spotted a lizard shoot across the path in front of us. I then spent ages trying to find it to let her see it.
Needn't have bothered - half an hour later we were fishing the blighters out of the pool and shooing a dozen of them away from our sun loungers as Bella cheerfully fed them scraps of baguette. I daren't even think of the nightmare today would have turned into if she'd taken a disliking to them...
