Sunshine is a great time for a picnic

If you walk to the left of the Château in Daglan and down the road signposted “La Levade”, past the Château’s park you will come across a children’s play area and the gorgeous Céou river that flows past our village.  In this area are picnic tables, benches and a very handy barbecue.  We chose to sit near the river in the shade of a few trees for our first open air picnic of the season.

Our break was over, the bathroom will not get completed on its own. With the temperature reaching 30C in the shade, the hottest day of the year so far, the cool of our home does sound good.
