Didn't have too much on today so I decided to pack the mule & mosey on up to the woods. It's a 2 & a half hour walk from the house so we left at 9.30 this morning. I don't usually take a camera with me but I did this time just for you dear listeners.

We are headin' for the woods above the village.

A kiss under the mistletoe anyone ?

Plenty of new & interesting smells around here, ( we don't often come this way)

Although the air was chilly, the sun was warm..
We had gone through the village & now taking the yellow clay road to the woods.

This path looked tempting but...............

The menu? ...cassoulet (that's posh for baked beans & sausages :))

Mmmmmm good enough to eat.

For dessert..........An apple, some white chocolate fingers & an orange & cinnamon tea.

Prehaps it would have been best not to know what I look like :yikes:

After having been fed & watered it was time to hit the trail again,... of course I left the place as I found it.....as R.Mears says "leave only cooking smells"
We continued onwards & eventually joined the path home.

Time for a breather & a spot of vole huntin' before the last ferlong home.........no voles were harmed during the photo shoot....

Well "that's all folks".......a very nice outing & great weather. I also spotted a few interesting sites for future overnighters.
Hope you enjoyed the pics............thanks for listening.

Thanks for taking the time to show your pics. It's always nice seeing what other folks are up to. I see things are starting to green up, something we won't be seeing here till May. Until then the only things green are spruce and pine:)

Love cassoulet but prefer the posh version with duck confit! Quite often cook it over the wood stove here...

Is that a portable dog bowl for drinking water? I've been looking for a solution for my buddy Anton for some time now, but I'm always faffing around with extra water bottles and bowls. Where can I get me one of those!?
