Cirque de Cagateille

Another glorious day. After brekky on the terrace big fruit salad and coffees we headed off to go for a walk and a picnic. Quite difficult finding a not too steep a walk around here but I think we succeeded today.

We strolled up to the cirque, stopping and seeing loads of wild orchids, butterflies and flowers on the way. When we got up to the meadow areas where it all opens out it was looking the best we have ever seen it. About 4 waterfalls full with snowmelt which is still pouring off the mountains, in sunshine offering FAB views. We found a good picnic spot right by the river with some shade and some sun. Sandwiches, fruit and chocolate and chilled beer well deserved.

The walk back down we continued to see lots of flowers and butterflies of all sizes and colours, should have bought my butterfly book with me!!!

We stopped at the auberge on the way back for a couple of drinks before back to the barn for solar showers, yet to hear what Dad thought of it!!!! and now we are about to prep for a meat paella for supper tonight. Lovely day and so pleased the weather has been kind to us this year for Dad unlike last year where it was fairly wet and miserable.
