Hot again. We're out at six thirty in what should be the cool morning air. Sophie follows along at her own pace. At this time of the day the path is still full of fresh deer and fox scents which Sophie needs to savour. Our progress is leisurely.
It's far from cool. the sun barely up and its already 26 degrees and claggy. When we get down into the valley we find that the stream and waterfall have finally given up the ghost. Sophie gives me that unmistakable ' Do something !' look. This is the same look she gives me when the yogurt pot refuses to refill itself.
We wander, slowly, back up the ox track to The Rickety Old Farmhouse. Sophie gets a frozen strawberry yogurt cube and has a drink that goes on forever. Soon we'll put all the windows down in the little car and head off for our morning croissant.
So starts at scorching Saturday in deepest, deepest France profonde. A day when it's too hot to think.... or blog.
