An autumn walk

Autumn in Corrèze 
This past week has been glorious with warm temperatures, blue skies and beautiful autumn colours. Next week looks completely different with night time temperatures dipping to minus five and the threat of snow so we though we'd take advantage of the last of the fine days and take Mortimer out to Château de Sédières. This 15th century château is only 20 minutes from us and a great place to visit. Owned by the department of Corrèze the grounds are free to enjoy. As well as marked walking trails there are 96 km of bike trails (including some quite extreme cross country ones) and fishing lakes.

We decided on the lakes walk, an easy ramble of 5 kilometres. The leaves have been dropping fast so we missed the peak of the autumn colours but it was beautiful nonetheless. Mortimer enjoyed the walk and had a little lake dip.

I can't resist the Limousin cattle!
