Wednesday 28 May 2014 - Notre-Dame de Vie

On holiday at Maison de la Foret, there's a short walk up to the small church, Notre-Dame de Vie. 

On a sunny day we went up here, and all of us went a little further, the Roberts pairs returning by their routes of ascent, whilst Sue and I continued along the fire track, accidentally bypassing Chapelle St Laurent and making our way down via an interesting cross country route that led finally past some white Arabian stallions, through some vineyards, across a wooden bridge and into a thicket. Beyond the thicket was a large house surrounded by two separate electric fences.

"We'd better go back" I told Sue.

"Hang on" she replied, "that's our car over there." 

So we vaulted David and Jan's wild boar defences and returned home for lunch after this 10km circuit. The GPS download of the route will be interesting as I have no real idea of where we went or how we managed to get back to the house so effectively. 

Sue and I then enjoyed a relaxing afternoon whilst the others went shopping in Collioure. 

Today's pictures are of Maison de la Foret, and Notre-Dame de Vie.
