Alfresco in February...

Popped over to see our friend Dave just outside Chaumussay yesterday after working in the courtyard of the 'Old Walnut Mill'. We sat out on his new 'sitooterie', it used to be where his caravan, which was his and Hillary's first 'home' here in France, used to sit. Beautiful sunny afternoon finished of with aperos...lovely end to the day.

Pics. taken just as the sun was going down.

Une bonne fête à Barrou

Had a very good day yesterday in good company at the ' Fete de la Saint-Blaise' in Barrou - always a very sociable event.


Dominique and I did a wee turn as did David and Geoff...good fun!

Revisiting Saint-Valentin

It was way back in 2010 that we had first visited the village of  Saint Valentin on what was a cold snow covered February day - as it was such a lovely day yesterday here, in Centre-Val de Loire we packed a picnic and headed back over to renew our acquaintance. 

We had a great afternoon and even posted our Valentin uniquely stamped card from its post office.

We picnicked in the park under a beautiful blue sky.
