 ...here around Ménétréol-sous-Sancerre.  

From our house, if you want to get to the Loire River, first you must cross the canal (i'll have a pic of that later), and then you go over the Vauvise, where Julien and I used to fish for trout.  We brought the poles and tackle again, so there will likely be a few more fishing expeditions.



Just on the other side of this bridge, in fact,  is where some gypsies gave me a trout one year because my fishing efforts with two of my friend's kids were highly unproductive.

After the Vauvise, you have to pass through Crow Alley, where there pavement is white with crow missiles and the air is filled with their raucous cries. :P


The water is too high at this time of year to get close to the water, but this was one of our favorite spots, the one mentioned in this post


And on the way back to Ménétréol-sous-Sancerre, as you walk at the edge of wheat fields, you have this lovely view of the vineyards of Sancerre and L'Orme au Loup, The Elm Forest of Wolves (don't you just love the things that name evokes?).


 
Lovely. In fact, I think I'll go for a stroll this evening.

That first photo, at a glance, gave me the lefthand side of a pair of green sunglasses, seen up close. *g*

Beautiful. :)

That last photo could almost be a shot down our road, except the left field (which would be ours) would be a dandelion filled mess.

*lol* There are horses in that pasture, and it is full of tall grasses and tall yellow flowers (like what they call gold buttons in French).

no wait. I lied. That is a wheat field just before the horse pasture. :P
