With the Connemara ponies and all the greenery around us, I couldn't help thinking "We could be in Ireland" (on a good day!)
I was caught by the beauty of this still lake, reflecting everything around it.
Gigi stopped in her tracks, you could see her think, Hey! It's a horse! and then she wanted to figure out if it was a boy horse or a girl horse and she was sniffing around his tail area to try to work it out. Flurry meanwhile was snoozing beside me, totally uninterested, so when Gigi had relaxed again, we moved him closer to the statue for the photo.
There were two things I wanted to do today, one was to ride along the ancient Roman way which runs North East from Saulieu
and the other was to cross the TGV (high speed train) tracks
A few trains passed as we approached. To the best of our knowledge, neither horse has ever seen a train before, but they could not have been less interested. Even so, we played it safe and went through the tunnel in between trains, and fairly briskly.
We met up with the LSH shortly afterwards and returned to our temporary home at Camping du Lac at St Agnan.
I'm off to Dijon to see the LSH safely on his train to start his journey home tomorrow. Here's today's Everytrail map. We covered 29.1km in six hours, at least one third of it was in pretty lousy trail conditions, but we've broken the 400km mark - WOOHOO!
