This next walk took us up the Alcantara river to Francavilla, a hill town with a ruined castle. Following directions from a group of happy ladies in the square we climbed the precipitous pathway to the top and were rewarded with even more excellent views and photo opportunities.
From there we followed a nature trail down to the river through orange groves. Lots of oranges had fallen from the trees so we decided to help tidy them up. The river was in full spate and showed why we could not visit the gorge last week. On the trail we saw large Raptors which we could not identify and a meter long snake shot through the air across the pathway right in front of Sarah.
Another hot day.
