Walk Around La Roche Posay, February 2018


Our walking club outing for Thursday 21 February saw us doing a loop from the pretty spa town of La Roche Posay. Here are some pictures from the afternoon, which was mild and sunny.

At the end of the walk, once back in La Roche Posay we popped in to Martin's sculpture exhibition. His wife Denise is a member of the walking club and was with us.

It was a kit that Roger built himself, years ago.
