I am currently enjoying a short break in the South West of France, and today I was near Narbonne. The sun was shining bright but the wind was very strong. I really loved discovering

then we drove to St Pierre sur Mer to park near the riding center, where a little fair was taking place – sheep shearing and local foods and drinks
then we walked the path up the hill until this was unveiled in front of our very eyes – truly mesmerizing!
this is the ‘gouffre de l’oeil doux’
and finally we drove to the Abbey of Fontfroide, an ancient Sistercian abbey, really worth the visit
so long, dear Readers
tomorrow is the day when I go for a 6h hike near Mazamet, that will be more in the woods;)

In May, our border collie is 4!
Some cat collects the warmth from the wood;)
Until next time, take care and don’t forget to enjoy the season’s treats!
