Sunshine returns

We’ve had a week or so of chilly and cloudy weather. We missed some of this while we were in Toulon but we were beginning to wonder if we would ever see the sun again. Today however saw the return of the sunshine. A bit breezy perhaps but quite warm and I headed off on the bike. It’s a bit of a battle cycling into this constant headwind but it’s still so so nice riding in France on their smooth quiet roads, blue skies through miles of vineyards. I even checked out the Pinet Co-operative today in preparation for my Christmas order.

This time we got it right and had a wander through the vineyards climbing up high to look over the town and the surrounding landscape..

Back at the villa we still had time to sit by the pool and have afternoon tea. The sunset is awesome tonight – a huge vivid red sky. More sun tomorrow we hope.
