Saturday 10. 06. 12 Met up with friends at the bridge just outside Gignac for the transhumance where the sheep are driven to the high summer pastures on the Larzac plateau above Montpeyroux. Hot afternoon with blazing sun with little shade. We walked the 5 km to Montpeyroux with the sound of the sheep bells ringing in our ears. We had all taken a picnic dinner so soon settled in to a pleasant shared meal with aperos and then wine. A rock band and an accordionist entertained us while we ate. Good conversation in French and English, good food and wine all on a warm summer evening in the Midi. Life is good!

Thursday 07. 06. 12 It has been cool and wet in TO this week but it now seems to be starting to change. I went down to the lake yesterday with Maryann and we did some drawings in the midst of a long on-going conversation. The above is a small watercolour I did this morning of one of the back alleys near Jason’s house – very verdant at this time of the year.
