Some seriously nice weather has hit Le Sud lately and I went out for my first bare-legged ride today. The day began with an early spring ritual Shoko and I always look forward to – The Shaving of the Legs. Today’s was a rough job, accomplished with clippers, but still, it makes me feel like the season is finally upon us. There are no photos of the hams, I’m afraid, but really, you should be thanking me. It’s not a pretty sight…yet.
Today I went out for an ‘endurance ride’ up north and took a familiar route, detouring once to the tiny hamlet of Le Baume. There were 3 or 4 little streets, all with typical names, like the one below. And yes, there was a (functioning) lavoir at the end of this one.
Very near the lavoir was Ruelle du Chateau, which had one of those on it, too.
No, this is not on Rue des Portes – just a side door of the chateau.
Lots of things are blooming at the moment and the vines will be coming soon, I’m sure. I’ll be out tomorrow, too, so brace yourself for more of the same.
