Les Animeux

Both Alan and I have loved being in the countryside. We have seen a lot of wildlife compared to our Mill Road, Cambridge life. We have seen a White Egret, plenty of Heron and Buzzards.




We went for a walk at dusk whilst in Giverney and had the privilege of being amongst the evening’s goings on. A couple of deer were frolicking (proper use of the word) in the field; we could hear ‘mices’ in the undergrowth and saw a young otter in the river. In contrast, the hotel next to where we where staying had a field containing, llama, Emu, Ostrich and Geese! You never know what you are going to see when you go for a wander.

The best so far though, was at the Chateau Chenonceau, looking down into the water, you’ll never guess…a beaver!!


Never, in all my days, did I think I’d have the view that we did, of a wild beaver. He was just hanging out, having a rest and we were looking down at him from only 6 foot above.


More travelogue entries to follow tomorrow, (have been writing them off line, so I can upload when we do have internet) but must dash, as I'm off to the Australia Film Centre for a little Cannes Film Festival Soiree...as you do ;-) Lots of love xx

I thought it was a platypus when I first glanced at the photo. Still very cool!
