|S and GiGi|
Anne and I met up with S, our French friend, and headed off for a hack with me on Flurry and S on GiGi, with Anne following on foot. We crossed the main road and headed off up a route which we have wanted to do since we got here! It was great!

Anne had to collect our friend Shona from Marseille in the afternoon, and K and I had dinner ready for them when they got back to Céreste. It was one of those freestyle casseroles that work out really well - neck of lamb, shallots and carrots, cooked for about two hours. The "recipe" is on our Recipes page.
On Wednesday morning, we planned a longer trek/hike, with Anne, Shona and I sharing horses and K following on foot.

She got to do all the fun stuff, riding up through the forest with Anne, while K and I slogged along on foot. Great views, clear air, the sun shining overhead - I wasn't complaining!
|I think Shona was happy!|

Thankfully, it wasn't a break, the Vet diagnosed a strained ligament, gave her anti-inflammatories and told me to bring her back if she's not using all four legs by Monday. I'm happy to report she's greatly improved, and using four legs some of the time. Phew!
