06/05/2017 Managed few photos from the car despite a dirty windscreen, rain and reflections!

Maximum temperature 16C, minimum 10C.  22 kmh NW wind 38 km/h gusts.   14mm rain measured.
Our neighbours sheep as we leave home.

The church at Montemboeuf,  Dark clouds and a bit hazy.

The sky cleared a little -  Bridge over La Tardoire river.

Welcome to the Dordogne.

Forests of the Dordogne.

Dark clouds driving back home.

Driving through the centre of Montbron...

And finally our usual road hazard :-)

  3. Beautiful scenery and greens surrounding you. Love the peace and quiet too. I can see that the streets are clean too. Have a wonderful Sunday!

    1. The towns and countryside here are rarely littered with paper or plastic. We also love the peace and quiet. Diane

  4. I am totally enamoured of these wonderful old towns and villages. Good luck with the elections in France today. Let's all hope that sanity will prevail and Marine Le Pen will be soundly rejected.

    1. Sanity did prevail and Madame Le Pen is not president thank goodness. We also love the old towns. Diane

  7. Hi Diane. Great photos. Pity about the weather but they do set a mood. Very different to the still hot summery weather we are having down in Durban, 29 degrees here today (Celcius). Have a good week.

    1. The problem I have with Durban is the humidity, but anything under 25C is cold to me!!! This weather is unusual for May!! Cheers Diane
