The dose of awesome we needed to carry us into the weekend.
No matter what the weather all PONs treat each day as a gift of inestimable wonder and delight. Female PONs start their daily routine by fixing you with their eyes and wondering why it's taking so long to go out.
Impatience to get things going is partially hidden while Angus waters the pots by the pool.
Then we're off across the fields towards the next village. Not a soul to be seen. It's a holiday here on Monday and it would seem that many folk have opted to head off early to the coast.
If there's one thing Angus would like to take back to Scotland it's this bronze statue of a goose. Something about the way the finish catches the light. Sadly, it belongs to the chateau. Sophie is more interested in the remains of a picnic someone has left on the grass in the car park.

This article contains the line ' The dose of awesome we needed to carry us into the weekend '. American English is truly a wonderful thing. A dance off between US and South Kotrean marines could be described in many ways but 'awesome' is not one that springs readily to mind. https://taskandpurpose.com/mandatory-fun/marine-corps-dance-off-tiktok-video
