Early start as we planned a trip to Col de la Core for a little explore walk to a lake as the forecast was hot, hot, hot. Lovely breakfast of our usual fruits and yoghurt before we trundled off in Vinnie. Col de la Core is about 50 minutes away from us.
A relatively easy hike to Etang D’Ayes. We were going to climb a peak and do a ridge walk but opted for a more leisurely day with time at the lake to relax. A steady 2.5 hours walk there and once there the lake was too tempting for the lasses, we were in but Al was not tempted. Refreshing swim in a gorgeous lake and not too busy.
It was only a couple of hours back with time for sme bilberry and raspberry picking on the way.
A quick stop in Seix for a cold drink and we bumped into Annie so she joined us as well. Then back to the barn via a quick rose at the Auberge.
Hot showers and luckily Al had already marinaded the pork so food was not far behind. A glorious evening with Balsamic marinaded pork, a sweet potato, beetroot and feta salad plus the usual green salad mix from the garden.
We had dinner down by the outbuilding and spent hours looking at the amazing starry night before crashing pleasantly pooped!!!
