Mister man...walking near Chaumussay


Went for a walk on Sunday with our friend Dave around his lovely property near Chaumussay. It was a misty afternoon but didn't detract from a good walk.



Dave took us on one of his well-trodden paths that crossed a couple of different 'official' routes.


Probably just as well he was there as signage continues to confuse us!



What's the code? Or is it a formula involving pi?


Which way now?


Not this way...that takes you over a ditch and onto a field with no obvious path??

Some vines waiting for spring. I am always amazed  that these scrawny plants produce so much pleasure.




Still in use?

If prizes were given...






If there was a award for the best decorated village around us  here in Barrou then the prize must surely go to our neighbour Lesigny... with a special commendation going to the the Pharmacy for its wonderful window displays.

Another walk in the forest...


Went over with friends for another walk in the Foret de Preuilly yesterday, beautiful day (if a litle chilly) for a stroll;



As we waited for ou fellow walkers to arrive Pauline caught sight of a family of deer crossing the road in the distance,only just managed to capture them with my camera - always great to see!










Bit of serious tree pollarding spotted en route.

The first real 'show' of winter...

Heading over to Le Grand-Pressigny yesterday for a great New Year's day 'brunch' laid on collectively by three friends, we had our first real show of winter as we drove over from Barrou...beautiful.
