Spring Sunshine

Actually, last week's  weather was more like Summer than Spring - cloudless blue skies and glorious sunshine, which was a lovely change to the grey skies we've had to endure for most of February.  Not being quite warm enough to brave a trip to the coast, where else  would we go but back to one of our favourite walks along the Brest to Nantes canal !

Josselin is one of the most picturesque towns in our area, and is only a 15 minute drive away from home .  No matter how many times we walk the canal bank around the town, the  dramatic setting of the chateau towering above the town and canal never fails to impress.

Weirs and locks

Walkers, cyclists and avenues of trees

There's even a small jump course for those wanting to place the odd bet or two !

Not quite Aintree, but lots of  fun on race day.

An afternoon out wouldn't be complete without seeing some flowers would it?

Finally let me show you one very brave cat

I certainly hope she's a good swimmer :-)

Sadly, our weather took a turn for the worse over the weekend and we are back to the cold, grey stuff, but fingers crossed that it doesn't stay too long.

It really looks beautiful around you.

I'm not sure if that cat is brave, or stupid!
