Walk before dinner

We decided to take our walk before dinner tonight because we wanted to be able to get out before the rain started. It did start to drizzle at the end of the walk but we didn’t mind much. We like the rain.

Below are snap shots of our walk along the outskirts of our village.

Vilay loves the middle row of trees that you can see in this photo. These same trees are visible from our bedroom window. The trees remind him of a Chinese landscape painting. He will stand at our bedroom window sipping on his coffee and unwind after a long day at work.

We found three horses during our walk. The gentle horse above let us pet him for a long time. I think he was sad to see us go.

He followed us to the edge to the field.

I thought the horse above was beautiful but he was shy and didn’t want to get too close.

When I saw this white horse peacefully grazing on the green grass I thought of a princess and magical forest.

Vilay and Boy Blue got a head of us because we took our time saying goodbye to the horses.

We caught up to them pretty quickly since they were taking their time so that Vilay could enjoy the fresh air and view.

The girls ran to catch up with the rest of us after they were distracted by the slugs hiding in the grass along the road. I was informed that the big slugs are the mamas and the little ones are the babies. The mamas keep the babies off the road so that they don’t get squashed. So logical. :)

    I love the pics and your site. I’m an American and did a semester exchange in Germany. Now, I’m a mom of 2 living in rural Illinois and love to read about travels and people making life abroad work for them.

    What a beautiful place to live! I think I would be just like Vilay, staring out at the stunning landscape.

    GP,
    Montana is one of the places in the States I would have liked to see but never got a chance to. Glad you stopped by.

    Dawn,
    I understand because even though I am an “expat” blogger I enjoy reading other blogs written by people living in a new country for the same reasons.

    Susie,
    Thank you. It is hard to NOT take a beautiful photo here. :)

    Caffienated Cowgirl,
    I am finding myself more and more beside him. We love to tell each other to get up and come to the window to see the sunset or sunrise. Usually, our view is spectacular. People pay to get away here in the Jura but we have it for free. I don’t take that forgranted. :)
