11/09/16 Out for a cycle ride with Nigel.

Maximum temperature 29C, minimum 14C.  8 km/h SW wind. Very Dry.
Country roads and brown, dry fields!

Entering Montbron.

Le Tardoire river !!!!!

Hiding the wall damage with a patriotic flag.

The big pumpkin at an estimate was about 75 cms diameter (2'6"), seen growing by the side of the road.  Obviously trustworthy people around!

The Mairie at Vouthon.....

and the War Memorial.

We really do need some rain!

Watchout for falling rocks.

St Sornin.

Last night's sunset.

  1. Beautiful day for a motorcycle drive in the country. You can tell it is indeed dry.

    1. Hi Velva it is not quite as easy as a motor cycle ride, there is a lot of leg power that goes into these rides :-) Actually Nigel went a bit late and he said it was too warm! We have rain forecast for the end of the week, just hope that it happens, we are in desperate need. Hope all is well with you Diane

    1. It does not look good does it. Even well established shrubs are looking sad! Take care Diane

    1. The roads are generally pretty quiet in the country but there is still the odd idiot that drives too fast!! Not good sleeping weather there at the moment! Keep well Diane

  5. I guess you need rain to fill that dry river bed. Such a nice ride.

    1. The drop we had yesterday will not have any effect on this river bed!! Best wishes Diane and Nigel.
