Walking from Chambon


The Thursday 23 January walk was from Chambon. The weather was cold and frosty. I was the most bundled up of any walk recently. Along the way, French, English and Russian was to be heard spoken by the walkers.

There are a lot of new roofs in Chambon, after a hail storm a few years ago. 
But one does wonder what the insurance assessor made of this particular arrangement.

The chateau at Rouvray is open to the public every September for the patrimoine weekend. You can't see too much of it but even so, it's well worth a visit.

Yes, so I understand. We've never done it, but should.
