We went on a five and a half hour walk with the dog today...the things you can do when the kids are away...
I so loved it, it was such a perfect day, not too hot, not too cold, sunny, and there was a beautiful little town at the turnaround.
See that house up there? I want it. My Mom has a long history of buying run down places and fixing them up. I seem to have inherited it, though if you could see the view, and the property...
This is taken through an [almost] bricked up doorway, amazing eh?
The dog has slept a lot this afternoon.
One of the things I love about hiking in Europe is that at your turn around, or somewhere on the route you'll go by a little village where you can get some coffee and a snack. We got bread, coffee, bunyols, which are sort of like deep fried sugared tim-bits if you can imagine that, and I went into a local seven-eleven kind of job, I had the option of foie gras, caviar or truffles!!! I went for a paté. I was tempted by the foie gras, but didn't want to carry the jar for two and a half hours, and couldn't bring myself to throw the rest out.
One of the things I love about hiking in Canada is that you never come across a little place to have coffee, unless you've packed it in, and you find somewhere to set up your camp stove.
p.s. the spell checker knew neither timbits, nor foie gras. Hee hee.
