A land of olives, wine and water…

Browsing through lots of the entries in this week’s photo challenge on WordPress got me thinking that I would like to submit a longer entry. But then again, do I really want to do another on the same topic?

Yesterday we went for a long ride, mainly along the beautiful Canal du Midi, and I used TC’s phone to take all my shots. We rode for around 35km before turning back, so while it’s not exactly my “neighbourhood”, it is the area we have been living in and just love.

It was a gorgeous early spring day, sunny with hardly any wind, until this strange sea mist came in on our way back. So today, I just have a little photo essay on our region, as seen from my bike yesterday.

Enjoy!

    1. Oh yes, the autumn was beautiful and we are kicking ourselves that we didn’t go down to the canal and take more pictures – the trees that line most of the canal are just beautiful. We missed last summer here as we went to live in the North for a few months, so doubly looking forward to this one 🙂
