I'm hearing from friends that there's a heat wave going on in the States with record temperatures being set in many places. While our temperatures here in the Lot have moderated a bit. we're still in 'cool-seeking' mode. Lucie went for a dip in the river this morning and is now lying sprawled on the cool tile floor of the sunroom. I've got doors and windows open trying to catch a bit of a breeze before the sun burns away the cooling cloud cover. I leave you with this cooling view of the beautiful Mediterranean along the Cote Vermeille. Stay cool!
