We are very lucky to live in such beautiful countryside. Here is the view from a walk I did last year, not too far from St Just.
One of the “walks through the woods” that I enjoy. This one is rather long, so I’ve not done it for a while – maybe one day soon…but I’ll take the car the 2 km to the start so I don’t have to walk up the hill home!
The old railway viaduct at Juré – part of a nice walk, on which you can do a 500 m diversion and go to friends’ house for reviving cups of tea/coffee/juice. Very handy!
Mr FD’s photo of St Just from the Champ des Foires above the town. You can just see our house.
Another “Walk through the Woods” – I did this with Cathy about a month ago and we found lots of wild strawberry plants in flower…perhaps it’s time to go back and see if they are in fruit!
Spring flowers in a meadow near here.
The church in Saint Germain Laval, about 16 km down the road. It is slightly bigger than Saint Just, and has a fortified Medieval centre.
The war memorial at Veillas. It is a tiny hamlet, about 2 km from Saint Just, on the route of another of my favourite walks. There can be no more than 10 homes in the hamlet, and yet there are (I think) at least 10 names on the memorial. Too many, too many…
And this last photo is taken on a walk further away from home. It was on a walk I did from Clermont Ferrand – you can see Puy de Dome.
I hope you have enjoyed a little photographic tour of the canton (plus a quick sortie into the Auvergne at the end!)
