Breakaways on Le Tour

Leave a comment

Yesterday was Day 8 of the Tour, and I am still spinning with the best of them!  In the evening, I broke-away from the home front and went for a walk.  We went down to a nearby trail that we love but haven’t visited in ages.  DH helped with the pics and Toby was beside himself about getting a real pack outing again.

I have now finished the section of predominant yellows, and am in a range of pink – wine reds (left Ethan Jakob).

The creek is low but still moving, and the valley was gloriously green.

All of a sudden my eyes focused and I saw the dragonflies!

Toby showed his gratitude when we sat down at the edge of a football (soccer) field.

And looking-up from our spot the sun was just starting to go down in the trees.

The heat was so deceptive – we enjoyed the walk comfortably but all felt so drained once we got back to the house.  Toby didn’t notice the cat all night for the happy lethargy.
