A walk to Cirque D’Anglade

Woke up to Blue skies again..yippee!!! We were hoping that was the case so we could get our walk into Cirque D’Anglade which starts just by the old mine.

We headed up to the barn first to do a quick second varnish on the floor, looking good and to do a few measurements for our weekly trip to St Girons tomorrow.

We headed up to the old mine in the truck and then wandered up to the Cirque D’Anglade. It was absolutely peaceful not a sole in sight, fantastic autumnal colours and some exercise. We ended up at the Cirque with a good view of the tall waterfall which falls into the valley below.

We had our picnic lunch up there before heading back to the barn.

We have decided that we would really like to try and get the fall in the small outbuilding prepped ready for  insulating and putting a cement floor down. This was actually really quick, a few huge slabs to remove first then plenty of earth to dig out and use as infill up on the terrace to be at the back.

Al had a great idea re ducting heat into the building under the door lintel so I left him to drill his way through so we can get a pipe in whilst I put the last coat of varnish on.

A very productive and top day.

We needed to speak to Cecile to see if we could get her to speak to the water diviner as the strong, fast Ariegoise accent on the phone would be a mare. We stopped at Adam’s on the way for a catch up and appero. Cecile was preparing supper so we left her to it and will call back after she has eaten.
