Outdoor Wednesday in the Forest de la Chenesse

Outdoor Wednesday seems to coming around even quicker than before now that the days are getting shorter.

Please visit our gracious hostess Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer for more delightful Outdoor scenes.

Even though there is a chill in the air in the early mornings the days are bright and sunny and so it was on Sunday.
After mooching around the Brocante in Le Molay Littry and before attending the Over 60's lunch at the village hall (more about that later this week!) the DH & I took Ben for a good long walk in the Forest de la Chenesse.

When we drove up to our, usually very quiet, parking spot we found lots of people milling around, they seemed to be getting ready to ramble through the woods or go picking mushrooms or both.

Too busy for us, so we drove off to find a quieter spot.

Have you got your comfortable walking shoes on? Is your dog on his lead?

Then "on y va".

The sun was shining through the leaf canopy and all we could hear was the sound of the occasional bird.



  1. I know what you mean about Outdoor Wednesday coming fast. It is 10:30 a.m. here and it is drizzly and gray. Not very good picture taking weather with my little camera.
    I am scooping up your blog badge and adding it to my site. It is a beautiful vignette.

  2. Great time to take a lovely walk!! What a gorgeous setting. Your chien is precious!! ;-)


  3. J'aime bien! by the way, we will be leaving HH the 10th - the day after you arrive! Nous serons 12 - toute la famille! Linda

  4. I forgot to mention earlier the reason I started posting my Santa collection one at a time a month ago is because I have around 100. We all know Christmas is just around the corner.

  5. What lovely pictures you have today again. I love the woods and I must tell you every time I see your header I must smile , it looks so great
    Autumn started here today. Dark weather, I don't like.
    Have a nice outdoor Wednesday

  6. What a great way to spend a morning!! Beautiful pictures...as always!

  7. Oh that Ben is adorable....I'd enjoy taking him for a walk in those pretty woods, and searching for mushrooms like we did in England when I was a child. Sweet memories.

    Lovely feeling of Autumn from your pics - thanks for sharing your walk.

  8. Very pretty - love your pup !

  9. Interesting Maggie, are there truffles in those woods? Hmmmmm

  10. There is nothing like an autumn walk in the woods with your dog.

  11. Maggie, you live in such a beautiful spot. Your photos are really lovely. Thank you for sharing them with us. I hope you are having a wonderful day.
