Time in the mountains and Quélé-wood

Most things are now unpacked and with some new shelves and use of the attic the house is feeling calmer. Farm machinery has been moved, grass cut and the space for the potager and chicken run provisionally marked out.

On Thursday it was Jasper's birthday, so we headed up for our first stroll into the mountains. Nothing too strenuous after our long journey - so we headed for Pic de Girantes (2088m).

Early autumn sunshine and clear skies made for a pleasant ascent and lunch on the summit.

stress is good for your six-pack :)

After an initial navigation error we soon gained the right path for the interesting descent via the Pas de Roc, which I hadn't done before. This is now marked with yellow markers.

I think we've come the wrong way

Jasper now 20!

Today Phil's son and his associates arrived at Quélébu to film a couple of scenes in a short film he is making. Phil plays someone called William and I was an incidental character called Steven. Filming was very professional and took most of the day with one scene down at the barn/gite fixing my tractor and second in the kitchen back at the house. Hopefully I'll be able to post a link to the finished film at some point in the future.

This evening a short storm and some magical lighting.
