Monday saw a great change in the weather with us seeing conditions we would normally get in June...so we took to the hills and woods around Barrou. There is a marked route that takes you past the Mairie and behind the church up the hill into the woods Always glad to reach the top!
The shade from the trees was a welcome relief from the sun we had waited so long to return!
There was still evidence of the recent heavy rainfall and we had to tread carefully at times but apart from a couple of squelches we survived.
We made our own deviation from the marked route to pop in on some friends for tea and sit on their sunny terrace and admire their garden. Hard work reaps its own rewards.
