We had rain this morning, but it cleared up this afternoon, so we headed out for a walk around Vals-le-Chastel, our nearest village. We came across this stunning oak tree growing next to the River Doulon. The colours were spectacular, even on an overcast afternoon. No handy bar tabac in Vals, so it was straight back home for a cup of tea on this occasion.
In other news, the local pompiers (firemen) called this afternoon selling their 2014 calendar – a sure sign that winter is on the way!
