In my previous post, I said that it was only two Sundays ago when we went walking on that wonderful sunny and uncharacteristically warm day. That was an error; actually, it was three Sundays ago. Still, it was November, and I never expected it to be so much like spring or even summer.
Here are the pictures from the second half of our walk.
We went back down to the river and followed the path for a little while.
From below, the vineyards looked wonderful in the sun.
There were some former vineyards, too, with all of their old stonewalls still there.
We came past this intriguing place tucked away in an old quarry. I would have loved to further investigate, but we didn't dare getting too close and intrude on someone else's private property.
Shortly afterwards, we took a steep road uphill. On top of the hill, it was really warm and sunny again:
The same former vineyards we saw from below:
Now we were on the path leading along the top of the hill. Looking down across the vineyards into the valley where we'd come from:
Back through the woods, and eventually to the car.
We had coffee and freshly baked apple cake at our parents' place afterwards. The best possible ending to such a lovely walk!
I am glad we made the most of the last of the warm, sunny Sundays for some months to come.
