February 2022

The blog is a little late this month as I have just been back to England to spend a few days with the family. Dave stayed here to tend to the garden and prepare the vegetable plot. With the warm weather, everything needs doing all of a sudden, and of course the grass is growing again!

Dave has also finished constructing the new wooden deck outside the guest suite. It is bigger than the old terrace and a sunny spot for morning coffee

We have had an active month, making the most of some great weather.
We chose a sunny day to re-visit the disused marble mine at Uchentein, the other side of St Girons. A beautiful spot with fantastic views for a picnic, and not too long a walk for Dave's knee.

We also enjoyed a weekend staying with Richard and Yvett at their now house in the Aude. The weather was good again so we did an afternoon walk around the village of Bugarach. According to rumour, the unusual mountain there was to be the only safe place to be when the world was to end on 21st December 2012 and the village is now a popular destination for New Age travelers.
We also enjoyed a day in the sun on the Mediterranean coast near Leucate.

Another walk this month was along the mountainside above Luzenac in the Ax valley. We walked to the Chateau de Lordat which provided another great picnic spot.

I also enjoyed a day skiing with English friends in the little ski centre of Ascou-Pailheres which was great fun. 

Here are our albums for the month
