Random images from La Fosse

Here are a couple of pictures for you from yesterday's bike ride.....At each cross road here there is usually a cross with Jesus on it (sometimes fallen off as in the 2nd to previous post) . Every now and then you get one with the Queen of peace instead. They are my favourites. Here is a beauty that lives about 2 minutes ride from us here at La Fosse. The plants are always well looked after and the gravel always raked.
Next is an idyllic scene, once again only a few minutes away (although the way the wind has been blowing it's more like 10 or 15 minutes, even downhill I've had to pedal like mad to get anywhere). Look at those whopping Charolais cows. There was an amazing chateau just behind these trees. Maybe we could move on from the ghost house at Behuard when we win the lottery.
Here is the door to the Church in Tigne. The wind in the trees was making sighing noises and no one was about. Very peaceful. This is the tiny Chateau right next door. Known as the "Petite Ville". Imagine having your own turreted bedroom and private moat.
This is the view I wake up to every morning. The view outside our bedroom window.... I must water those plants.

You can next time. Better start organising it now. Just fancy, when it's coldest in Melbourne, it's warmest here!!! I'm sure Liz would let you come & stay. xxxxxxx
