Out and about

My laddy, Jamie, arrived with us on Monday and we have got glorious weather for his visit, thank goodness. He has been enjoying fresh air and exercise balanced with just the right dose of r&r for a full battery recharge to be assured by the time he returns to the UK on Friday.

Yesterday we popped up the road to Peguère and did the no. 2 waymarked route along the forest tracks and paths, up to the Roc de Peyre Caussil and on up to the Cap de Campets (1504m) above the Col de Portel before a fun run back down to complete the circuit. The autumn colours were incredibly beautiful on such a clear, sunny dayand we could see the Col de Port with Mont Fourcat and the higher Pic de Barthélémy in the distance.Pissou is visible down below usIt was a good run of 11kms in beautiful scenery

Today, I took Jamie up to the Cirque de Cagateille to show him the possible venue for some ice climbing in the Spring once the falls have frozen (fingers crossed). The light was altogether flatter but it was still a stunningly beautiful situationTomorrow's plans will be discussed over some vin rouge this evening!
