03/02/2016 A walk in the opposite direction to the one the other day.

Maximum temperature 11C, minimum 2C.  45 km/h NW wind gusts.  5 mm rain measured this morning.
Early spring lambs.

Mimosa/Wattle

Walking to the nearest village. Wet roads but the sun is shining.

Poor horses in so much mud.

Our local village.

I have never noticed this house before called Abracadabra - I wonder what magic potions are brewed here!

Across the fields to Chez Galardou.


The winding road.

Logging.

View across Chasseneuil. Wind turbines in the distance and the arrow marks the large resistance memorial.

Grape vines waiting for pruning.

  1. Hello Diane, thanks for sharing your walk today. I went to the gym today. Walking to Wantage doesn't have much to look at , as you know. We had cold winds and sun today , which makes a big change from the rain. Take care xox Anne (Trying to figure out which way you walked from you house)

    1. I used to do that walk when I was working for 4IT (which has now closed down) as you say once you have done it a couple of times it gets a little boring. Hope you got the map I emailed to you so you can track the walk. Keep well Diane xox

    1. It takes a bit of getting used to having winter at Christmas after 50 years in South Africa! Diane

  6. The mimosa/wattle flowers are very pretty. Looks like a nice and quiet village. The poor horses must be feeling very uncomfortable with so much mud. I am also following here. Thank you, Rhodesia.
