From up in the vineyard, on any relatively clear day, you can see the valley of the Cher River out beyond our house to the north and east. Often the only hint of the valley is a band of white fog lying in the riverbed.
As it was on this day last week. On the far bank, the right bank, you can see a water tower. You can also make out the angular tower of a grain silo poking up through the mist. The silo is next to the railroad line that runs parallel to the river. From a distance its bulk makes you think it might be a cathedral, until you get up close and see it for what it is.
