Snowed under



A million apologies for not getting around the blogs right now, it's just a case of not enough hours in the day.

This is my busiest period, full occupancy at both Le Banquet and Le Relais des Roches. Hospitality with a capital H.

The air is heavy, the scent of barbeques wafting in the breeze. It was 36 degrees today, the ground is dry, the swimming pool a veritable HQ!

I'll be back!

  1. Rob - you really caught my attention when you titled your post "Snowed Under" (snow in August was quite a concept)! Busy is good - especially in your business. In the meantime, we will thoroughly enjoy the photo!

  11. Oh how beautiful. I regret our Portland Oregon spring and early summer was too wet and overcast. Consequently, our gardens don't look anything like they should at this time of year.

    So envious of your gorgeous place.

  14. Good luck keeping up!
    You mentioned your tripod in a comment. I also have one - not expensive but it works - but haven't been using it lately. I can think of several shots that would have been better if I'd dragged it out of the closet, though. So thanks for the reminder!

  22. Wish we'd had one of your gorgeous cottages this summer Rob - we went to Devon and it pee'd it down the whole time!

    I'm glad you're bust though as it'll keep the wolves from your door over winter :)

    Hope you dont mind, but I would like to follow you.

    TTFN.....Gary
