Childhood on the cheap, or...

... why we like walking so much.  Yes, yes, here are some more photos of my children clambering up and down mountains with their friends.  It might seem that that is all we do.  And right now, you would not be far wrong.  There's been a lot of wind and rain here (if one more person tells me that it's like the UK when I know for a fact that the weather has been much better over there than here recently then I will... erm... be quite put out) but I don't mind, wind makes me cool, and rain makes everything green.  Green and cool are good in my book.

All this walking makes me very happy :)

Nous allons dans le grand vent....

To round off les vacances (and guarantee ourselves a peaceful evening), we took the kids out walking with Anne, Pascal, Emile and Pierrot. It was super, super windy.  70km per hour winds.  Very exciting.  A bit of wind is slightly annoying, a lot of wind is an adventure.  We had to keep hold of Owen for fear of him being whipped away.

It's so beautiful when you head into the Caroux mountains, the longer we stay down here the more I feel I couldn't possibly live anywhere else.

And here is Matilda, communing with nature on a harmonica.

Today.  It doesn't get any better than this.
