Wintry Forest

 
Foret des Ecrivains-Combattants in Winter

This forest is only a short drive away and is a regular venue for walking my dog, Button. Today, despite the bright sunshine, there was a light dusting of snow lying.

Chapelle de la Dourque


Chapelle de la Dourque

The tiny Chapelle de la Dourque stands in an isolated spot next to a minor road about 10 Kms north of St Chinian. The chapel has a very unusual roof made with stone flags (called lauzes in France). Inside it is beautifully maintained. There are many more pictures of the tiny, secret chapels of Hérault on my website Secret Chapels of Hérault.

Avène


Avène

The small spa town of Avène is next to the River Orb. The town is protected by the meander of the river. Today, Mostyn and I walked to the top of a nearby hill but were in cloud so were unable to see, let alone photograph, the extensive view! Perhaps another day.
