I have taken this photo from Google images as I was too busy making sure Scamp didn't disturb the lizard to take a photo. This shows a juvenile lizard which is what we were lucky enough to see.
As we went on our way we passed this windmill
We stopped in Kingston, which is a small village, for lunch at The Juggs. I can recommend the food here. It was delicious.
After lunch we headed up onto the downs climbing from 98 feet above sea level in Kingston to 587feet at the top.
The views were good from the top.
Once we came off the downs we stopped for a cup of tea in Rodmell, a small village which has a National Trust property Monk's House. This was the country retreat of novelist Virginia Woolfe. In addition the village also had many quaint cottages.
From Rodmell we headed to the River Ouse. The tide was out so the river was quite low.
Today we are heading out to a National Trust property Polsden Lacy which has been a favourite with our family for years. I think all of our three children learnt to walk in the grounds and they all enjoyed rolling down the slope on the back lawn. Sewing will be resumed shortly.
