My World no 9 – 11. May 2009

When Winnie visits, we want to drive around and enjoy this beautiful country.  This time we decided to take “The scenic road to Mirepoix” and eat lunch before making other plans for the day. This day was very clear and we could see the Pyrenées without too much mist. From La Pène we went to Escueillens and followed the signs to St Gauderic and Honoux. We could have used 25 min. but why rush when there are so many pictures to be taken.

Fabulous pics of your world. So makes me yearn to visit France again. We used to visit 3 or 4 times a year when we lived in London. Sigh.
Thanks for sharing.

Nice snaps. Country side is always beautiful as it is still not tampered by modernity.
