Nocturnal Dog Walking

When it’s cold and dark, it can sometimes be a chore to take the dogs out for a decent run, but fortunately that’s rarely a problem here! We left the house just as the sun was setting, so we were treated to a beautiful sunset between the trees.

It’s amazing how little notice we take of our surroundings on a day to day basis, and I can’t remember ever having seen this unusual rock tucked away in the gardens until Nonym used it as a makeshift drinking fountain.

So, after a decent run in the field (them not me!), it was time for dinner. Last night we’d had a barbeque ‘chez amis’ and Florence had been kind enough to give us some leftovers for tonight.

The Sanglier (wild boar) had been slow roasted on the bbq for five hours and was some of the best I’d tasted. To go with it, I made a simple ratatouille with rice and garnished it with shavings of Grana Padano – just the thing after working up an appetite!
