We spent a three nights in the Auvergne region of France, in a lovely B&B, on 8th, 9th and 10th September. We had hoped to be able to drive some of the green lanes on both 9th and 10th September, but heavy overnight rain washed out the 9th. Instead, we visited the nearby ruins of a chateau and then drove into the town of Clermont-Ferrand.
We drove along some narrow country lanes where we picked some wild heather and some blackberries from the brambles that grow wild along the hedgerows. We also had two sightings of pheasants in the fields. Very nice to be out in the countryside!
For my 55th birthday (10th September), we got to drive some green lanes with Arjan of http://www.thegreenlanecomany.com. What a wonderful way to spend a birthday!
