week 1 of 3 in the beaujolais

The ‘lucky’ vignerons I visited last week, including ‘Fedora’ – le chien de Lapierre!

I write this whilst trying to work out where the odd sock has disappeared too – it’s already time to pack my bag for week 2 in Beaujolais!

Week 1 was such a change from the weather at home and most of the three weeks in Chablis too – they have been characterised by rain, mist, snow, and often sub-zero temperatures. There was a little of the latter in Beaujolais too, just one day of rain, but plenty of clear skies. Some fast jogging times for my Strava too – I’m much slower back home this weekend, it’s poor under foot – icy, from not completely melted snow and plenty of standing water – ho-hum!

And don’t forget – next weekend my Chablis 2017 report is online – 64 separate articles!

Anyway a few views from this week:

    Fedora doesn’t look too thrilled to see you 😉 ! Or just making sure you can be allowed in with bark worse than bite ? Bet a piece or two of charcuterie (if offered) would have quickly improved ‘relations’ :).

    Ah, I see, he wasn’t hostile to a visitor, just in the ‘exciteable’, poised ready, hurry up & throw my ball phase. Bless ! You’ll know what to take next time you visit then:)
