October 2018

The warm and sunny weather has continued for much of October, except for the one night a couple of weeks ago when we had some heavy rain. It was nothing like as bad as it was in the Aude though - the excessive rain fall caused a tidal wave (literally!) of destruction. 

We enjoyed a walk up above the little ski resort of Guzet - really beautiful dramatic scenery, and some vulture spotting (see Dave's album)
We are packing up for a drive back to the UK this weekend, so are sending the blog out early

Here are our albums

September 2018

As very often in September, we have enjoyed some lovely warm and sunny weather. Near the beginning of the month we had a short visit to the Dune du Pilat, near Arcachon on the west coast. We camped right by the dune, which was much bigger and more impressive than we had imagined! We also cycled along the kilometers of cycle paths along the coast to Cap Ferret which is so well known for its oysters - we enjoyed a rose wine and oyster lunch before cycling back to the car, with a stop off at the beach on the way. 

We then enjoyed a few days in England with the family before friends from Maidenhead came to stay for a few days. The weather was great and we all enjoyed walking on the Plateau de Beille and visiting the cave at Mas d'Azil.

Finally, on the last day of the month, we did a beautiful and scenic circular walk at the Port de Saleix

Plenty of photos in our albums this month!
