I love taking my summer holidays in September, just to savour those last moments of sunshine and summertime.   You can almost sense Autumn in the air, but just not quite yet.  The mornings are fresh and the days are bright and hot, especially when you find yourself in the South of France.

This is where I recently had a blissful and much needed relaxing break.   Lots of lovely walks through vineyards, and bike rides along the Canal du Midi.  Take time to breathe, to live and to just be and to be in the sun!  Long alfresco lunches catching up with friends and their families .... dinners extending late into the evening...

It is and always will stay one of my most favoured destinations - why...
because of the scenery and landscape,
because of the pretty little villages with their red tiled roofs,
because you can still find some delapidated old barns and village houses and dream of renovating it into a state of beauty and charm,
because of the amazing food and wine,  
but mostly because some of my closest friends and their families live in this beautiful part of the world

These few photo's where snapped with my phone (amazing the technology nowadays.....) on some out and aboutings in and around La Redorte, in Aude, France.
