A lovely choice of books, I see, from Lampie. I want to read them all and so thank you Lampie for finding us such a selection. I know not which one to choose.

A bright autumnal morning here, distinct signs of autumn on the leaves, the wind a little calmer than it was in the night. Some printing to do this morning - barcodes for an old customer down in Cornwall - and then we are off to join old friends and neighbours for lunch in their Cardiff Bay flat before they fly off next week to Lanzerote for the winter for they are passage birds, yet they sadly affected by Brexit, the value of their UK pensions is down (because of the exchange rate) and they are uncertain whether their reciprocal health cover will continue.

Next week we are ourselves off to the south, flying over the Channel to Nantes and then descending to the Cantal beyond - but I am sure I have said this before. I shall take my trusty iPhone so I may be able to post pictures here.

I hope everyone else is also fine, that Lampie's allotment overflows with produce, that Faith's pigeons are listening to their Mozart and deciding to live, that FN's dolphins are chilling (well you would wouldn't you if you must swim in those northern waters sans wet suits) and Camilla's Patchcockle is giving the beach seals a wide berth and not pulling his 'mother' over. I wish everyone else a good and happy day as well.

Very HappyVery Happy

Re:
Withy Brook's Avatar I think we did not get the gale, don't know how much we did have. I do know we had a lot of rain but not yet been out to check the rainguage.

Camilla's Avatar Thank you for posting Fennie.Very Happy

Is the photo you posted in Nantes France? Whereever it is it looks very inviting, what species of tree is the one in front of the Parasol?Very Happy

Not ventured over the dunes and beach this morning Fennie with Patchcockle we are giving it a miss today so had a windswept walk around the village . Another longer walk later this afternoon is on the cards though . Yes he can do that pull me over but I make sure to have him on a short lead before I let him off and then he..... Runs like the clappers.Very Happy

Re:
Fennie's Avatar No that is the farmhouse where we shall be staying when we go down to the Cantal, Camilla. The tree in front of the house is actually a willow and a weeping willow at that I believe and when we first went there (it is not far from the Mill) the willow had its branches but then they were cut for a reason I have forgotten - maybe they were diseased, or blocked too much light. This photo was taken some years ago so perhaps the tree has regrown. Typical Cantal house, you will notice built on a bank so you have a garage and 'sous-sol' (literally under ground) built in to the house on the right hand side.

Re:
Fairy Nuff's Avatar That looks like a lovely place for a holiday Fennie.
Our seaward friends at least have a thick blubber layer warmer than any wetsuit. Laughing

Re:
Camilla's Avatar Ah I see Fenie must have been the house then at The Mill, love Willow Tree's I had a small weeping one years ago at the old house but unfortunately I lost it and it died.
