Back up the hill

After we finish our loop, it's time to head back up the hill toward the vineyards and home. Just before we get to the incline, we cross a stream bed that is normally pretty dry. But often in winter, because of rain, the low point in the walk is a muddy mess. And it's slippery. So, if we've had rainy weather, we don't go down the hill.

Grape vines come into view as we approach the top of the hill.

That's ok, because we have lots of paths we can take up here on the heights. Some of them get wet and muddy, too, but there is always an alternative, even if it means just staying on the road.


  1. I don't think I've ever seen this view before!

  2. What a lovely walk and it’s great that you have several alternatives when needed.

  3. Yes, it's a new view for us! I've enjoyed walking in your woods this week. Merci bien.

  4. mitch, I'm not sure I've ever taken this photo before...

    bettyann, the location of this house next to vineyards was one of the features that attracted us, lots of places to walk the dog(s).

    evelyn, il n'y a pas de quoi. :)


Tell me what you think!
