The most noticeable thing about this location in the South of France is the SILENCE, a tranquillity difficult to find these days. Even the birds don't start singing until about 08:00 and mechanisation doesn't seem to have reached here yet.
My first duty early morning was to take this shot,
while still in bed, of the window shutters seeming like giant hands
beckoning the New Day!
An early morning walk from the house
down through the village
and onward to the farmland and woods beyond.
THE PYRENEES MOUNTAINS
can just be seen in the background.
My new Companion was soon given his marching orders
for frightening the birds well in advance of my approach.
The Running Man before me was none other than Hugh
returning from his regular morning exercise with the
fresh bread and croissants.
Just time for another shot before returning to the house
and joining the others for breakfast.
Lots of LIZARDS still appearing.
While the property is owned by the Dampney Family it is
available for lease to one and all.
