We awoke to utter silence…. Honest silence!
And stunning pastoral views. We made our way down stairs to be met by a happy Ruby.
Well we were very lucky with our Gite which though basic was very comfy and well equipped.
What to do on our first day. After breakfast I took Ruby for a walk while hubby drove to the village to pick up some supplies.
The walk was lovely and the weather was glorious. I set my sights on walking to a huge water tower before turning round. Ruby and I nearly got there but not far from our goal we passed a farm. Just as I was admiring the beautiful garden the back door of the farm house opened and two huge black dogs rushed. I immediately put Ruby on the lead, turned and started to walk back, I heard the farmer calling the dogs back. They approached us, Ruby ever a lady greeted the older dog, he then left, the second dog a large Bullmastiff puppy was more persistent. The farmer called him, Ruby ignored him, me I was scared because he barking and jumping up at us, finally the puppy returned to his master and I said a rude word!
The rest of the walk was uneventful.
We spent the rest of the day, sunbathing, walking Ruby…no more farm dog run ins. We also planned where we would go during the week.
We were amazed at how quiet the area was, so quiet and at night so dark! We could see stars and planets! 🌟
