January walks

In the midst of busy lives we try to make space for the Monday afternoon walking group which, under the able leadership of a French couple, produces walks up to ten kilometres every week. Numbers range from about 8 to 16, and there is a preponderance of what you might call north Europeans (Dutch, Norwegian, Belgian and the odd Brit). It’s a good group and we take regular pauses for photographs and discussions of flora and landscape. The year has started well with dry sunny weather and it’s been a pleasure to explore a number of new places and see old ones from new angles. Here are a selection of photographs from this year.

We find this sort of thing vital; if we weren’t careful, we would find other things to occupy our Monday afternoons and it seems a bit silly to live in Provence and not actually see it.

Pausing for a group photo beside the bare vines
In the shade this was a cold start even though we were climbing
Yes this is the Taradeau oppidum, about halfway on this particular walk
And here’s the group admiring the view of Taradeau from the oppidum
A familiar place from a new viewpoint. Courtesy of our clearing you can see the wall of the Taradeau oppidum to the right and above the tower.
