A highlight of our summer was our visit to the Lakes to catch up and share some of the landscape with you. The Kingfisher flashing over my shoulder and weaving its way down the river as I swam was spectacular. The plunge into the waterfall exhilarating, and walks (albeit with the aid of a stick this time around 😆) as breath taking as ever. It’s always a pleasure reading your thoughts and even more if a pleasure sharing first hand in your experiences of the natural world. May the Autumn bring many more adventures.

Thanks Hadge, glad we made the highlight reel! Always a pleasure to have you here and to share our favourite places with you both. Although we’re sad to see the summer go, no doubt autumn has plenty of adventures in store...

It has been interesting here in France, the seasons rolling one into another, indistinct in lots of ways from each other. We have had balmy Summer swims in the Charente, but cold dips too. Earth scorching heat, and autumnal chills. The brief glow of sunflower yellow, the early crackling darkness of their burnt downturned faces. A very odd year. Or maybe the norm. We snatch the moments we dream of ... and celebrate everything. Chips in the van sounds great and we love a cold dip. Nice to see you back

Thanks guys, beautifully put. Sounds very similar to ours - indistinct in many ways but full of moments to celebrate. We are promised a few days of sun here over the weekend and next week so perhaps we'll get our balmy evening swims yet...

Us too ... a few days of sunshine coming next week so we will head to our favourite swimspot at Aunac-sur-Charente, or seek fresh dippage elsewhere. I have a hankering for a beanie though. I shall relish the Autumn jobs outdoors!

Ah yes, Autumn jobs are the best. I'm looking forward to getting back to working in the woods soon!
