A gorgeous day with quite a wind blowing when we woke up. Brekky in the outbuilding, then Laney and I got our kit together for a trip up to Port de Salau on the Spanish border. Al had decided to have a knee rest day from walking so he can join us for the rest of the week.
So we trundled up, Al stopped after 10 minutes where we left him for a forage with sadly no luck and we continued up. it is a lovely walk, not too steep and a gradual 1000m ascent up to the border. We saw nobody always a bonus, plenty of cows and sheep, hundreds of gorgeous butterflies and a few folk at the col. Managed our picnic lunch at the top looking into Spain and a bit of a relax before descending back down with it gradually getting hotter the lower we got down. Fab day out Laney’s knee and foot held out well and she is now just sitting in the river as an alternative ice treatment!!!! before having a hot outdoor shower.
Al had pottered on and got lots of little jobs done at the barn, security bars on the shutter, strimming the bracken, wood chopped, parts of the floor cleaned etc etc and probably loved some peace and quiet……
We are now marinading some trout for the BBQ to make an Asian trout salad for supper should be good.
