Today, because the light was clear and sharp, I bundled up and went up the hill to the Lac St Ferreol, about 5 km from our village of Soreze. All sorts of people were out -- families with children, couples with dogs, young girls, fishermen, older folks...enjoying the sunny, crisp day. I walked half way around the lake.
Take the walk with me...
As seen in the pictures, I stopped midway at the cafe near the Musée du Canal du Midi. The restaurant building is cantilevered out over the path that leads to the garrigole -- a giant nozzle, fed by the water rushing downhill to the canal, which shoots water high in the air. It is a beautiful spot to sit for a moment over a chocolat chaud avec chantilly.
