Yesterday Lucie and I saw our river from a different perspective. Creatures of habit that we are, we usually walk upriver when we stroll the banks of the Lot in Cajarc. Yesterday, though, we decided to explore downriver. It's much the same with stone houses overlooking the water interspersed with small potagers, large colorful plane trees, and a few weeping willows.
One of the first things we noticed was evidence of pilgrims passing this way.
Then I spied this fruit-laden tree in the distance. The fruit looked like big oranges, but I think they may be persimmons...I couldn't get close enough to tell. Somebody needs to do some picking!
Same river, different view. It's always good to see things from a new perspective.
**A note about the first photo. It's been manipulated in my Picasa software. I like the almost oil painting quality of the image. What do you think about it?
