Holidays and walk

*waving paw madly*

Oh ! Hello ! Can you see me ?

Today, I’m taking you on a walk with Claire and Momo, close to home, on the Plantour Tour.

The hill of Plantour is located between Aigle and Ollon; Claire and Momo left from the cloister quartier at Aigle, They walked towards the castle and through the vineyards, then quickly took a path that goes up through the forest. The trail is quite steep in places, we advise against it in case of rain.

After sweating, they arrived at the Belvedere of Plantour. From here you have a magnificent view of the whole Rhone plain, up to the Lake of Geneva.

The Plantour Tour is a loop that goes around the hill ; on the other side, we see the village of Verschiez in the foreground, the Rhone plain towards Valais, and the Dents du Midi in the center (unfortunately hidden by the clouds that day).

The return to Aigle is done by the paths that wind through the vineyards to the castle.

I hope you enjoyed this walk !

End of summer

After a well-deserved vacation, our humans have resumed their work path. It’s still summer, but without heat waves, which is very nice. We’re enjoying beautiful days in the garden.

Claire and Momo take a walk on the weekend, as usual, and one of their walks took them to this superb castle that you have certainly already seen on our blog : the castle of Aigle. Isn’t it beautiful in his vineyard ?

Very hot, too hot

I don’t know how long this will last, but it’s hot again, very hot, too hot here : 34, 36, 38 C (93, 97, 100 F) ! For those of you who live in the southern United States or Australia, this may not be unusual, but for us it’s unbearable..

It is too hot, humid, and the air conditioning of houses or apartments is very rare. So we implement the advice we’ve given you here to protect us from the heat, and set an example for our humans to do the same : hydrate, cool, stay cool, and avoid unnecessary effort.

They respect our advice : yesterday, for example, we had a visit from Grandpa (Claire’s dad) ; after eating, they quietly stayed inside to play cards.

Do you also have these increasingly frequent heat waves ? Or has it been common for you for a long time ?

PS : we’re glad to know that our friend Marg is OK and has nothing broken after her fall on her back yesterday. We send her tons of healing purrs. Get well soon, Marg !
