Moving sideways
After being on Facebook for about seven years, but never
really using it, I've taken the plunge and am now posting there. And definitely learning
as I go along. I've created a Facebook ‘Page’ called – not surprisingly – Bize

Canoeing on the Orb
Last week Bonnie and I decided to do a canoe trip down the
Orb River. We’d been talking about it for some time and decided to wait until
most of the holiday makers were gone, but while it was still warm enough. What

Fortified Mill at Canet d'Aude
Normally our end of year walking group picnic is held up in

Airlie Beach
I had a quick and quite unexpected trip back to Australia in

Uzes and Pont du Gard
OK I have a little catching up to do here ….. things have gotten
away from me these last few months, to say the least. I have no visitors or

especially as the temperature is cli...

It’s taken me weeks to sort through far too many photos. I
have been off travelling again – this was something that’s been in the planning
for more than a year. My old friend Sylvia from Perth told me she’d booked a

Bize Patrimoine does it again ….
Tuesday’s walk was in two parts – first to visit the site of
a dolmen which has been recently cleared by the Bize Patrimoine. It’s called la
Mère de Dieu (Mother of God). Looking for more information about this
particular dolmen, I came across this comprehe...
