09:46

Today's ride: Back on cliffs above Saint-Cirq-Lapopie because... why not? Few drops of rain a welcome refreshment!

20:33

Look for 'fancy' restaurant in Cahors but v. busy Saturday, so end up in a backstreet bar. Prolly more fun anyhow! wink

12:06

Chemin de Halage: aka. a towpath cut into cliffs along the river Lot. Good idea as it makes for a nice shady walk.

11:44

Above the River Lot: a veritable motorway compared to some cliff-edge roads we travelled in Norway so no worries! smile

12:29

Lunch in Saint-Cirq-Lapopie. Beautiful place & v.toasty today so we chose a super shady spot... & the large beer! wink

12:10

Saint-Cirq-Lapopie perched above river Lot. Very impressed by this beautifully preserved (& clean!) medieval village.

18:45

Oh look... a beach... and we're nowhere near the coast! grin Lovely spot by river Lot, Causses du Quercy National Park.

15:11

Climb on foot up to Cordes-sur-Ciel was worth it even in today's scorching heat! Beautiful medieval village in Tarn.

13:18

You've seen sheep, cattle, etc. in a field squash into the shade of a single tree/hedge, yes? Snails are the same wink

10:24

Second ride of the day: short cool down with Pratiwi, who also tried #HaySurfing for the first time wink Not bad! grin

13:00

1st meal out since you-know-what (over 3 months!). Love random roadside stops... esp when they turn out great! grin

08:26

Shock as guy who shot himself in the foot asks why his foot hurts... cry https://twitter.com/JimMFelton/s...

10:15

Today's ride: Dodging cattle normally no big deal but when herd has young & giant bull present some care required! wink

14:41

Post ride lunch: filet mignon, roasties & one of my favourite beers. Feels like it's my birthday! grin Nom, nom, nom tongue

11:14

Beaut Baronnies ride this morning. Road in the background is typical of the area: nothing straight & nothing flat! grin

11:39

19:35

When you're invited to socially distant aperos. Cheers! smile Thanks to the generous hosts - nice to get out a little smile

20:44

Hello Mr Sunshine! Haven't seen him in days but back in some style (briefly) this evening! smile

09:03

Seems like we are the filling in a cloud sandwich that stretches all the way to Pic de Belchou this morning! wink

18:40

One of our usual walks from home 'in the forest'. You can just about make out our village church on the ridge there.

07:26

Ossun-ez-Angles looking in the pink this morning. For a few minutes at least... cloudy now... Booo! sad

20:48

Don't suppose this evening's sunset was too shabby either! smile

19:45

Nice light on our short stroll this evening.
