A little Walk & stunning views above Simiane-La-Rotonde

Over the last couple of weeks we’ve got into a bit of a routine, going for a nice bike ride one day and taking Millie for a longer walk on the next. It’s a great time of year to be here with the dog as it’s not too warm to walk, in fact most days…

Another walk to Roussillon with Millie for coffee
