The end of the road

The dirt road that runs from our house out through the vineyards ends at this intersection. Here, two more or less parallel paved roads head down toward the river. Behind me in this photo, one of the paved roads continues on out through the vines to meet another road that runs between Saint-Aignan and the town of Céré-la-Ronde to the west.

Looking roughly northeast. These roads head down into the river valley beyond. The speed limit to the right is 70 kph (about 40 mph).

This intersection is usually the turn-around point of my walks with Callie. But every once in a while we head out a little farther to her utter delight. Her favorite thing to do is to get off the roads and walk around the vineyard parcels, darting into and out of the woods all around.


  1. What a beautiful place to live and wander.

  2. I would have titled this photo, "Rush Hour in La Renaudière". :-)

  3. Walt, I hope you know how much joy you bring to those of us who follow you blog. You show us the pleasures of a slower life in a wonderful place. Thank you!

  4. It's good that you guys can walk so far.

  5. mitch, it truly is. I think it's a very gentle landscape.

    dean, there is a school bus that comes by.

Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
