08/02/2016 A very wet and windy day! Nigel had to go to Chasseneuil for an appointment.

Maximum temperature 13C, minimum 8C.  77 km/h SW wind gusts.  9 mm rain measured this morning.  Even more rain and wind forecast for tomorrow!
Monday morning, many places are closed in France on Mondays.  A view down the wet main street in Chasseneuil.

Lidl getting closer to opening.

Cows taking shelter under the trees.

Blue tit on the window sill.

Tembe screen shot this morning with elephant, impala and what looks like waterbuck.

    1. The elephants are of course not here but I watch them daily in the webcam in South Africa :-) Have a good day Diane

  2. It's strange to see the shops closed on Monday mornings. Here in the states, it's all hustle and bustle on Monday mornings. Great photos.

    1. France is very relaxed and takes some getting used to. Many shops, including the banks are closed on Monday, but they do open on Saturdays. Two hour lunch breaks usually from 12h00 until 2h00 but many stay open until at least 7pm Shops do not open here on Sundays except for the odd supermarket which will open for 3 or 4 hours in the morning. No rushing down to the local to grab something you have forgotten which I could do both in RSA and the UK. Have a good day Diane

  3. Must be time for spring rains to bring on all the flowers. Is fun to watch the webcam and see elephants. I haven't gotten lucky with a lion, yet.

    1. The problem is Gaelyn that the ground is so saturated that a lot of the plants are rotting. Our garlic was looking wonderful but I think now we will be lucky to get much from the plants!

      Seen lion a number of times, mostly between 21h00 and 22h00 our time. I leave it on in the background and when I hear a roar just flip over to the video. Hope you catch up with them soon. Keep well Diane
